    VFD recommendation. Looking for a 5hp single phase input VFD. Good deals out there?

    Single phase input. 5hp. Remote pot speed control. It would be nice if I could set it up with 0-10v speed control later for CNC interface. Internal brake resistor, or at least a built in chopper would be nice but not critical. Oh, application is my SAG 14, so reversing isn't critical. Good...

    Hi, I’m just starting a look at an installed system. S7-300 Profibus HMI comms...end to end, no branches, no obvious field io. They are hoping to open the system to their factory database. They seem to have a solid db department so I won’t have to beat that up too. Any serious ball busters I...

    The price and availability of wheels with aluminum cores and CBN or diamond surfaces has brought me to rethink my grinding and honing wheels. They are in bench grinders and pedestal grinders.
