Re: Motor starting jolt

Check for any looseness that may be causing the jolt.  Like pulley looseness on the shafts.  I once repaired a lathe that started too slow, I identified the motor as a dual voltage motor that was wired for 220V and plugged into 110V.  It it possible yours is the reverse of that?  A motor wired for 110V and provided with 220V?  Something seems amiss as this is not a usual complaint.
