    My wife also quilts as a hobby and uses the same type of rotary cutter. She does all her cutting on a strange looking, soft green board of some type that allows the cutter to last a very long time....

    I looked at the linked Lenmark Industries site and to my untrained eye it looks like the asking price for most of the stuff on their site is unrealistically high..way high.

    Jason,

    I'll bet you have this figured out already and have made your decision but I'll throw in a bit more info to cloud the situation. I have enclosed a link with a neat calculator so you can see...

    Jason,

    I also find the work you're doing interesting and probably quite 'humanitarian'..if it's OK to say that these days.

    On your press, while I can't see it real clearly, it appears there is...

    I did this retrofit quite a few years ago and because my available power was only 240v-single phase, I re-powered the lathe from 7.5 hp to 5 hp and used a new Hitachi 10 hp inverter. (X200-075 LFU)...

    I have a clone to your machine although mine was factory with a 7.5 hp motor. To reduce the cost of the VFD I swapped the motor to a 5 hp and did the VFD install using all the factory buttons and...

    Daniel,

    Most manufacturers of frequency drives have many that accept single phase power, and of course output 3 phase, although I'm not familiar with what you have for power on your side of the...

    Daniel,

    Welcome to the forum. That's a nice looking setup, and to make it super versatile for most jobs including tapping I certainly would entertain putting a VFD and a small 3 phase motor on it....

    Well I was wrong (maybe) about the unit being home made so this may be fake news as well, but the color of the pump and all the fancy safety wiring almost make it appear to be military surplus. Maybe...

    It sure looks home made to me. I can't believe a company would manufacture something in a tinny little barrel and mount a big fat motor on the drum head and poke controls and plumbing through the...

    The sophisticated infrastructure just to put all the car stuff together is mind blowing. Somewhere in that factory is a rack of PLC's the size of a Greyhound bus and a huge room full of programmers....

    Brian,

    I've worked on both large wood versions and small metal versions. Along with (metal) the drum rotating in the direction of feed, there is a whole bunch of coolant stuff that goes along with...

    Much as I hate to do this, I'm going to flog this dead horse a little bit more. Looking at the stuff in front of me, I see the little 5 volt wall wart charger for the digital scale and it's tagged...

    Bill,

    Thank you.

    Stuart

    Edit. Further scrutiny of the little 5v wall wart thingy lists its input voltage as 120-240volts.

    Bill,

    Just to crystal clear, using a wall wart rated for 120-240 volt input, connected to two legs of a 240v-3 phase circuit will get me what I want..without smoke!

    Magic aside Cal...looking at two legs of household 240 voltage with a scope, you'll see the sine waves out of phase 180 degrees. Same scope but hooked to two legs of a 3 phase supply, your scope will...
  23. Bill, Thank you. So what I think you are...

    Bill,

    Thank you. So what I think you are saying is that connecting a transformer to two legs of a 3 phase system is no different than connecting a transformer to two legs of a single phase (240v)...

    Because I don't undertand the finer points of electricity I simply ordered a traditional control transformer with a 240/480 primary and a 120/240 secondary. I've used a ton of them and understand how...

    I'm still a bit confused. The facility my machine will be delivered to will supply 240 volt 3phase which will be 3 wires with a 4th wire as a equipment ground. There is no neutral to my knowledge...
