    Umm... Yes. I said I did at the beginning of the post. I even changed the collet and the tung just in case. But there are no visual signs of damage on any component, and everything is clean and tight.

    if it were mine.... I would open the cover and look at it with the lights turned off.... HF on.... you may very well have a high voltage leak....... look for blue corona sparks tracking off to ground where it should not be....

    That is a brilliant idea. I will try that tomorrow.

    carbon tracking is pretty common in high voltage circuits...... is the same phenomena that caused crt type tv sets to grow dimmer and dimmer over time.. till finally shorting and burning up the flyback transformer...

    Anywho... the same type of prob is not uncommon on HF circuits in welders... you have been stepping through the possibles and this is the next step to try..

    pls keep us posted...
