  • I opted for a static phase converter, per the recommendation of an associate using the same. The converter is wired properly, and I get proper power on all three legs at the lathe. I'm able to turn it on with the switch on the front of the machine, and make it up, but the 1.5hp motor gets no power (its ground is good). All of the diagrams I've seen for phase converters have 3 wires coming out of the panel, and going to a motor. I have yet to see diagrams of how they connect to a motor like mine, which has six wires coming to the panel inside of the machine. How is yours setup, and could you offer any advice? Thanks for your time.

    Hi there,

    I have been doing tons of research in an attempt to get my Hardinge Turret lathe up and running. I found your post about "Phase Transmormer Issue) from September of last year, saw that you're using a converter to run a Hardinge, and figured I'd drop you a line asking for help, even though I'm not competent enough to answer your question from that thread. Please forgive me.

    My Hardinge is a turret lathe. Its got a coolant pump, and power feed. When I got the machine, it was set up to run on 440 3 ph. I had an electrican rewire it to work at my buddy's 220 3ph shop, and it worked fine there. I have my own shop now, and am finally around to trying to get it turning (rest of pm coming in another pm, due to 1000 character limit)
