Lathe woes and plea for help

John Veerkamp
>I have a Delta 46-745 Lathe purchased in Dec 02. Warrenty is 2 years. The inverter/speed control just died on me. There is a diode on the second board where one contact is loose and shows signs of sparking where it was attached. Delta no longer sells/has this speed controller. Does anyone out there have any suggestions about getting an equivalent replacement for this control unit? Possibly where I can get this repaired?
The motor specs are 1 1/2 hp, 230 volt, 3 phase, 1725 RPM.
Thanks in advance.
Latheless and desperate
John
