Hey all, I am going to pick up a delta 22-540 lathe today for free. It is in great condition except that the motor went bad. According to the previos owner, “the induction part” broke. So far I canot find the part he discribes to me (he gave me the part number). I have also looked for a replacement motor with no luck. The only idea that i had was that the HF looks to be the exact same lathe and I wonder if the motors are interchangeable.

Thanks in advance!

“delta 22-540 lathe” ? That model # is for a planer. If it’s a planer then I dunno. If it’s a lathe then it shouldn’t be impossible to find a new motor or fix the old one.

Woah your right! Sorry about that. It’s a delta 46-250 lathe. I’ve looked everywhere for the parts

Cole, I have rebuilt 2 older Delta lathes in the past and was able to get parts from a Delta service center. You could check online for your closest service center or maybe even purchase on line. That lathe is a fairly newer model and parts should easy to purchase from Delta. Another option might be to find a local motor repair shop. It could be cheaper to repair the motor than to buy a new one.

I’m dying to know what the “induction part” is. I imagine it hooks up to the magic smoke somehow. What is the part #?

I think that is a capacitor, needed for getting the motor spinning. If Delta doesn’t have it, any electric motor repair shop should have the needed part.

Many of those midi/mini lathes use the same motors and parts.

If the start capacitor is dead the motor should make a buzzing noise when you power it on and it should run if you spin the headstock forward by hand.

im going to go with ricks solution. A little more expensive but well worth it for the variable speed.

Agreed, if that motor will fit, VS is definitely the way to go. Please post back on how installation goes!
