New Jet lathe question

Alfred Poor
>My 30+ year old Sears Companion lathe finally gave out, and I just bought a Jet mini as a replacement. I couldn't get it to run, as the GFI circuits would trip when I try to start it. The Jet tech support folks emailed to say that it can't run on a GFI circuit. I'm willing to accept their statement, but can someone explain why this is the case? (I hope I have an unprotected circuit in the shop somewhere....)
