Thank you for reply and your time. I am happy to hear that you don’t believe I need to purchase a new press. I have become attached to this press already :) The motor does turn on when I flip the switch on. The press is spinning it is just spinning very, very, very slowly. It seems as though the motor is trying extra hard to turn the belt but it never gains enough strength to speed up the turning. Slow, slow motion. At times it spins so very slow then increases a tiny, tiny bit … like it’s trying? I tried to post a video but I have not figured that out yet. (I have been reading the blogs on this site to help me do that) I have not replaced the belt but assume it’s old so I will. The rattle I hear may simply be vibration of the entire press but I do believe I hear an “occasional” rattle that seems distinct almost like a loose coin bouncing in the motor (not consistently). Truth of the matter is that the rattle could have been there in the past and I simply didn’t notice it because the press was working fine. I have to go to a machine shop for a different issue. I bought a brand new lathe (jet 1220 vs oct 2019) and it’s dropping rpm’s. I am going to have it checked out professionally since it’s covered under warranty. When I’m there I’ll show them my video of the press in action and perhaps they can provide a little advice. Thanks again for your time and input. I truly do appreciate it! Kind regards, Patty :)
