    What ever happened? Did you buy the machine? In my honest opinion if it has everything it needs to run excluding the bottle or even if it has the bottle and you dont need to do anything other than...
  2. Cp 200 output contactor. Haas kamp conversion

    My output contactor on my cp 200 has failed. The little spring on the contactor has gotten hot and is no longer a spring. This lets the contactor bar just flop around and become wedged in the...

    Well i decided to resign myself to my fate and build a rotary phase converter! Made a pretty goid score at an auction and bought a 15hp 3 phase motor for $35. So continues the experiment

    I know this is an extremely old post but it looks to me like you have your motor wired for wye conection. Wye configured is usually for 480 volt and your running it on 220v. No wonder it draws so...

    Oh i already had the confeti show but it had nothing to do with a short. Damn relay contacts welded themselves together and starting cap blew before i could get to it to shut it down! But hey if ya...

    Yep totally agree and that where im having huge issues is the wide range of varing loads! The larger th hp the larger the gap on the math gets so it much more noticable on varying load conditions
  7. I may take you up on that offer. I am awfully...

    I may take you up on that offer. I am awfully intrigued by this possibility. You know because i need another project lol! Project #3982 waiting for funding for #1 lol

    Its a little more than that. The relay os just one of the issues. You need to re read my first post!
  9. Im not so convinced. I can kinda see where he is...

    Im not so convinced. I can kinda see where he is going with his method. I have done the haas kemp miller cp200 welder 3 phase to single phase conversion and was extremely impressed with it. A...

    What the heck is grokked?

    To be honest i dont see a rotary as much of a solution. In effect its really not a converter either. You still have to set up a static converter on it to get it...

    dalmatiangirl61. Thanks for the heads up on that book. I just ordered it and it looks like his method has great potential. If anything it should be a good read and add to the knowledge tool box!!
  12. Yea thats what im kinda starting to learn and...

    Yea thats what im kinda starting to learn and think. It looks like a static is acceptable at lower hp ranges and like i say i have used them before on mills,dust colletor motors and table saws with...

    Well right and if im gona drop a huge sum of cash fod a 15hp 3ph motor to make a rpc then at what point would i just be better off and buy a 1ph 10 hp motor and be done with it? Heck i mean as long...
  14. Well i got out to the shop when i got home and...

    Well i got out to the shop when i got home and much to my dismay it is configured for delta. There goes my wired for y theory out the window and leaves me in the unfortunate position of still...
  15. [QUOTE=CarlBoyd;3156084] Carl the resistance...

    Carl the resistance on tbe coil is 106.8 ohms. Just wondering how you figured 50 watts. If you dont mind could you post the math on that? Its been a long time since i did that in school and cant...
  16. Well on most of the stuff i have converted this...

    Well on most of the stuff i have converted this way i did not have a bad enough loss if power to notice. I was thinking a 16" swing lathe was overkilled to begin with with a 10hp motor and was hoping...
  17. After some more reasearch i am starting to think...

    After some more reasearch i am starting to think my issue may be the y or delta configuration issue. After work tonight i will try to get the cover off the motor and see how it is set up. The tag...

    Also on the voltage to the coil I am not sure as to what the voltage it is getting. For some reason I'm having a hard time getting a reading of what the voltage is. It's really difficult to measure...

    Its standard 220v houshold line voltage. Id have to measure to get the exact voltage. Of course that varies from day to day hour to hour.

    On the coil resistance I don't really recall I'd have to...
  20. also i already have a motor contactor im using...

    also i already have a motor contactor im using for the relay. only prop i think is that its a 110v coil. Not sure if i need the 220v coil or not. It seems they are hard to find with NC contacts....
  21. yea I may have to go that route. I really want...

    yea I may have to go that route. I really want to avoid that if at all possible. I have had rpc before and really they are another lump of crap to take up room in the shop. plus the added noise. ...

  23. Trying to build static phase converter for harrison m400 10hp late motor

    Hey guys im trying to do a static phase converter for a harrison m400 10 hp lathe motor. I am having great trouble getting this to a usable configuration. Its easy enough to use start and run...

    Well i have purchased a harrison m400 lathe and I am now going to put this L&S up for sale. I hate to but i just dont have tne room for another machine and this one has to go. Asking $2000. Also i...

    Hey John I found the hole you were talking about. it says oil well. I am not sure if that means use lots of oil or its the oil "well" reservoir. It did not have a plug and was completely plugged...
