TM-1 Single or Three phase?
We are purchasing a TM 1 this week and we were wondering whether its better to run it on single phase or off the 45 hp rotary phase converter not only for cost but total horse power to the spindle.

I don't know about the TM-1, but I have a TL-1 that I run single phase. When I first bought the machine in Colorado, it was installed in a friend's shop and run on three phase. There is no difference in operation as far as I can tell.

Run sigle phase and don't hassle with the phase converter. Machine will run fine either way.

I have run my TM-1P under single phase for over 5 years and works great, mostly cut aluminum. TM's aren't meant to take deep cuts so watch your load meter and you'll be fine.

Thats exciting a new TM1! Ive been looking to buy one of those myself, due to the fact they can run of single phase without any problems. Your from everson? I live in Ferndale, keep us posted on the new machine.
