Q:

where do I plug in the potentiometer on a craftsman lathe?

A:

Thank you for your question.

I can understand your concern as to where to plug this connector into your speed control board.

  • I took a picture of the board with the back cover of the lathe head removed to make it easier to see where to plug the POT wire harness into.

  • I apologize for the blurry picture. I could not seem to get it any better.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Just be careful not to damage any of the components on the board. I have found that air pressure works best even though it creates a dust cloud. Be aware of the fact that if you over amp the control board it will shut down. This can happen if you are turning a large piece at low rpm. If this happens turn the pot to the off position and then turn the main switch off and back on and then the pot switch back on. Sometimes you may have to do it a couple of times for the control board to reset itself. There are not any lubrication points inside this area. Happy turning.
