Hi everyone.. Thanks for all the advice. The five year warranty is an option but I might have to go through one of the repair outlets which I called. They said it would be 5 weeks before I can get an estimate and IF it is covered. Then repair would be another 5 weeks.

I cannot be without it for that long since I have some work to do and why should any repair/estimate take that kind of time.

So I called Delta and spoke with a rep. They were very nice and helpful and seemed to be sympathetic to my plight. I sent them a picture (which I posted below) and they said they will call me Monday with news whether or not they will send me a replacement directly.

I told them I can replace it myself. I hope they come through.. I will update this post with the info…

If they send me a motor I will be a Delta fan for life.. If they make me wait welll…................

any suggestions for a new lathe?
