    Actually, I think the OP's mill is well within the guidelines of the forum. His attitude is the problem. I've caught my share of shit on this forum. I don't let it bother me and don't respond in a...

    You're preaching to the choir. ;-) I have 2 Hitachi VFDs that are single phase input. So I have no use for this one and only bought it because it was a good deal. Or at a least I think it was. Maybe...

    I just saw this. Thanks Dave. I just bought a control transformer as you described. As you say, I'm sure it will come in handy for testing other things as well.

    Thanks again.

    I have a decent variable DC power supply that goes up to 30V or so that I use for a slot car track. Then I could do 120V AC and later 240V as ya'll suggest. I can to that tomorrow...

    I've actually owned a couple of Variacs over the years. I use to buy and sell used musical instruments for a living. Eddie Van Halen used Variacs to lower the voltage to Marshall amps to get what he...

    Thanks. I don't have a small motor and was just hoping to see the display light up. At least that would give me some hope that it's working.

  9. Testing a 380-480V 3 Phase VFD with 240V Single Phase

    I ended up with a 380-480V 3 phase VFD. I have no use for it but it was cheap so I bought it. Figured I can eventually trade it for something I need.

    It was suppose to be new but it's used. For...

    From what I've seen they run hot at lower RPM.

    You might look at Consew sewing machine motors on ebay. You can get a new one with speed controller for pretty cheap.

    I did exactly that. The 1K lb model is much more solid than the 500 lb model. Got one for ~ $200 with a 25% off coupon. One of the best tool purchases I've ever made. Very old man, bad back friendly....

    Thanks. I have an external brake resistor. I would like the E-switch to also be an actual panic button. So I wouldn't want the motor to coast to a stop.

    I think I'll just go with switching "L". It...

    You're right. I was confusing the E-switch with another function that I will bring up later. Don't want to get too many questions going at once.

    I do have a carriage mounted lever.

    I looked at page 31. Wiring the E-switch to "L" is how the guy was wiring it in the youtube video that I mentioned.

    Does implementing GS1/GS2 require the use...

    I have a Jet 13X40. It's belt drive. I put a smaller motor pulley on it and run the motor to 120Hz. Now I only have to change pulleys once and that's for speeds over 800 RPM. So I doubt I'll be...

    Yes and I understand that. What I'm not clear on is how to wire an emergency stop switch. That was my question.

    My manual covers that as well but it's a bit confusing to me and I don't want to do...

    VFD Remote For Basic Controls Questions

    More annoying VFD questions from me.

    If anyone remembers, I had a WEG VFD on my lathe that wouldn't allow S/V torque if the carrier frequency was set to 15KHz. I came across a good deal on another...

  21. Gas / Argon Hose Nut And Nipple Identification

    The nipple on the right broke off at the hose. For reference, the nipple on the left is spec'd as a 3/16" nipple. The 1/8" nipple (I assume it's an 1/8" nipple) I found in the link below has a 5/8"...
