    CarbideBob raises a good point, but I will add:

    Yes, a skate trying to escape is a constant PITA. A pallet jack would be an option if A.) you had the space to store one and B.) you could find...

    I had a similar problem with my VMC where I needed in a corner, but hated the idea of not being able to move it without rearranging the shop to get a forklift lined up. My solution:

    I appreciate your response. However, I do not believe you read this (albeit wordy) write-up which confirms your claim. I simply shared this because I see a lot of VFD conversations...

  8. A case study for running multiple motors off a single VFD

    The general mantra is simply to never put a switched motor (or motors) on a VFD. I explored this option for myself, and figured I would share the results with the hope it helps someone else down the...

    Quite a the writeup Tyrone.

    It seems this Hylomar is similar to Permatex "Form-a-Gasket" #2 non hardening sealant that I use on engines. Any thoughts on using that instead?
