    Here's my opinion, for what little it's worth:

    240v line to the secondary (240v) winding, no aspect of it connected ANYWHERE, as it's a balanced load.

    480v of the primary (480v) winding goes to...

    That looks alot like my South Bend Model 34, but it's missing a few key characteristics from the apron controls.

    That's not a huge machine... might swing 13" or so, and I don't see a quick-change...

    Dunno who made that, but they did a tidy job of it.

    What you have there, could have been commercially made, if so, one of the others that have worked with whoever did, will chime in to let you...

    Yep, they do. They're great for wiring 1:1 to provide isolation from mains for testing electronics that might be... 'leaky'... and it's always nice to have the wiring options to put power at...

    Typically, when someone fits a backend chuck, it's because they've got a workpiece that extends through, and it needs to be supported to spin true. The first and foremost application is rechambering...

    I'll repeat what a few others have already noted- if you don't need it, shed some of your compressor load. If you're regulating the pressure down substantially, reduce your compressor's upper...

    480v VFDs with DC bus access were marketed heavily towards the passenger rail market... why? because 3rd rail power on subway and light rail was between 500 and 800v... so a 480v VFD's DC input was...

    If your current RPC will bring it up with the table-saw running, that means you just need more gusto on the generated leg. I'd take Bill's suggestion one step closer to Neandrethal... get an old...

    Hi Tom!

    The SB9 was, and continues to be an extremely popular machine, particularly to the hobbyist/home shop types, because it is robust, well-made, and small enough for two men to carry down...

    That 16 is an excellent haul... why not use it as-is? It's got a backend chuck... perhaps they were using it for chambering work on rifles...

    If you put an RF spectrograph on it, you'll probably see HF noise in the realm of over 600v with regularity. I would not be surprised to see the cord survive it, but once it starts leaking a little...
