PM 3520 motor control

Philip F Duffy
For the last couple days my bread and butter lathe, a PM-3520 has been acting crazy. I turn it on and it immediately shuts off; the drive shaft shudders once or twice and then the off lite pops on the controller. Well, a bit if shuffling around with the buttons and then spinning the shaft and it starts and keeps running! But, if I put a real hard and deep cut with a 3/4 bowl gouge, it trips off. But it does restart. A good friend who has had a 3520B has a couple good suggestions on where to buy a new unit but I am wondering if one of our WC experts have had a problem and a good solution. HELP!! p.
