    No, he will not.

    He would be worse-off, not better.

    He has just about exactly enough power to operate a single-phase 10/12 HP DC Drive that can run his existing 20 HP DC motor at roughly HALF...

    I hear yah, ONE thermal should need two leads if it is meant for supervisory device response rather than inline/local. They can be MUCH lighter if utilized to open the hold-in on a mag starter or...

    Spot-on.

    My case? I'm NOT changing Voltage. Not significantly, anyway. But would use Delta-Wye even so.

    You have the wrong transformer for that goal is what.

    That's about $150, minus $50, pus $150, vanilla used 4-pole 2.2 KW // 3 HP. $330 to $400 gets you a brand-new one. A 3 kw can probably be had as a bolt-up for a skosh of reserve.

    "Fixed it" how? Cheaper faster? Bad choices made sooner? More screeming-meemie alleged gen-sets scrapped more often?

    You watched videos. "Seems like". Maybe". "Ive heard". "I see that..". "Might not be.."

    If you want Wye @ more than 208, nominal? That ain't hard.

    Look for a "Drive Isolation" transformer. The Wye side is NOT 208/120.

    The taper IS your "holding device". It is also a "driving" class of taper.

    Extend your DP's quill.

    See if it has an oblong slot or azure clear through both sides ... where a "wedge" AKA "drift" is inserted to release MT goods.

    They just told you WHY.

    You should get the ones the clever Chinese make for rich Kalifornios.

    Those will keep the house cold with no power at all for partial-day rolling blackouts.

    One might suspect an enterprising pragmatist could even craft a successful web site on that concept..?

    One of the best you will find for that size-range plus great reserve is a MIL-surplus MEP-803A "tactically quiet" then. I've had mine for several years, now and love it.

    So long as one doesn't look beyond the outer wear jacket of any multi-conductor cable, they can be VERY "deceiving"! 600-pair telco cable? Easy-peasy only because we always use...

    Quick'n dirty rings I've razor-sliced off Viton tubing.
