Well I've had my 1228 for a year, I made a frame for it to sit on with leveling casters, and it was covered. My car project is undergoing body work, and I decided to uncover, and get the lathe going. I spent the last couple of days, except Christmas, cleaning, oiling, running all of the manual controls, oiling some more, adjusting gibs till everything is moving smoothly, put the new quick change on too. Checked oil level, got familiar with the manual, and controls, read the power up procedure, plugged it in. Nothing happens the breaker in the back is switched, I do not see a door open switch for the belt, gear door, the emergency switch is in/out both, the start button does nothing no lights in the RPM window. At least I laughed, what else are you gonna do.....
