HI, my name is***** will be assisting you.

The easiest way to excite the unit is with an electric non reversible drill. Plug the drill into one of the outlets on your control panel, start the machine and with it running pull the trigger on the drill and spin the chuck backwards manually, be careful because if this works the drill is going to start running. It may take more than one attempt to get it working but this usually will work unless you have other problems in the machine.
