Re: Hi. Record Power CL1 help needed!

The RCD detects leakage to earth and I cannot think of any capacitor fault to cause a leak. Check for any whiskers of wire in all the connections but it could also be a dying motor which needs expert help to confirm before spending out on a new one.

Re: Spreadsheets for pricing?

As much as your customers might like to be able to work out your price without asking you it means you have no wriggle room either when you need to manage demand or when your raw material costs change.

Re: Draper Woodturning Lathe

The problem is the brand. Built down to a price. It will possibly be OK as motor wire is typically rated to 60 c operating temperature. The capacitor won't like running that hot so hopefully it is mounted externally and will be cooler. If it does fail ( motor will not start) it is cheap to replace. ...

Re: 240v -110v dust extraction problem

I think that is the problem Mark

The transformer always draws current and is triggering the dust collector.
The op needs a cleverer trigger switch that measures real power drawn not just current.
Probably needs to be designed specially for the job.
