Gentlemen, can the WT ZX45 motor be wired for 220 volts like most induction motors?  (I noticed the Bolton Hardware version of this mill can be wired for either.)  If so, could you please tell me what wiring changes I need to make?

My problem is that I just ran a dedicated 110v/20 amp line to the mill, but it only runs for a 5-10 seconds before popping the breaker.  I have nothing else on this circuit, the receptacle is rated for 20 amps, and it is a 20 amp circuit breaker.  I am using 12 gauge copper wire.

I don't mind running a 220v circuit if indeed the motor can be converted to 220.  (Most of my other machines are wired for 220v).  If it cannot, however, do you have any suggestions for me?  Do I need a 30 amp circuit?

Thanks,
Dan

Welcome to the forum!
Our order NO 3006-0085 comes wired for 110v;)...Some of the motors are dual voltage, but not all, since we specify 110v from the factory, we can't promise dual (110/220v) voltage.

If you call the store, we can check what we have on hand.

Don,
Thanks for your reply.

Your # 3006-0085 is what I have, and the plate on the motor does indicate 110v (not 110/220).  I don't care so much about what voltage I run--I just want to be able to run the thing without tripping a circuit breaker every time!

Shouldn't a 20-amp (at 110v) circuit be enough?  If not, what amperage circuit does this mill require?

Thanks,
Dan

Hi Dan,
Sometimes the start up draw is pretty high, but a 20a circuit should handle it.
 what store did you purchase the machine from?
Don

Don,
I made the purchase via your website, but I live in Dayton OH, so it was shipped from Indianapolis.

I can provide the particulars if you need them.

I actually bought the mill in mid-March, but it took me a while to get it down into my basement shop and build a stand for it, etc, so I'm just now actually throwing the switch for the first time.

Thanks,
Dan
