  • shaper rapid traverse

    Just got my G&E 16" shaper running.
    Everything seems to work properly EXCEPT
    the rapid traverse. Whether the ram clutch is engaged or not, trying to engage the rapid traverse while the motor is running causes big time gear grinding - too much to
    force the lever into engagement. If I turn off the motor, then hold the lever in engagement and turn on the motor, the table traverses VERY rapidly. Something clearly not right. Anyone have a clue as to what is wrong, either with the machine or my operation of it? Thanks.
Working...
