    Correct. The most obvious flag currently is:
    As soon as the P-P kicks on, anything that could/would/does generate an audible 60hz hum, gets exceptionally louder.
    The high-bay lights are what I...

    No shit! Bounce back and forth from a haas to an R650 daily (so does the OP of this thread). Mind-%$#& is pretty accurate. (you forgot to mention the stationary table)

    Bob is correct "be the...

    My current guy is really eager to learn. Especially when he first came on board.
    He has gleaned a ton of practical CNC knowledge from simply reading the haas manuals hanging on the back of the...

    This is what the neighbor (highly qualified to play with this schtuff) saw when my input filter caps took a shit:

    272265

    The voltage on the mains was still 240. The PP was just pumping high...

    I have the same saw. It is okay. It definitely speaks mandarin well!
    The electronics are as cheap as possible to get working units out the door. Including the under-powered motor (single-ph).
    It...

    In red ^^^^^ neither do I. I am not that smart. But, the Phoenix Converters gentleman told me it wouldn't be linear.
    I didn't ask (again, not that smart). He just volunteered that info. Almost as if...

    When I talked to Phoenix Converters earlier, he recommended two 40hp units.
    He asked me what all I had. I gave him a WAG of 60 total HP. I basically broke it down like this:
    Three haas's = 10hp ea...

    Muck it up, its all good. The more I read, the more I am leaning towards replacing with a big rotary.

    Bye-the-way: Phase Technologies rates my model of PP at 60hp. I am not hip on the math, and...

    Thanks for mentioning Phoenix, Turbo. They are local. Just got off the phone with them.

    Or at least an easier way to test the caps. As it is now, you have to remove them (pain in the ass!)
    Then un-solder the shorting resistors (pain in the ass!). Test (easy once the cap is in your...

    You are way over my head. I do not own or know how to use any electronic test equipment beyond a simple multi-meter.
    And, I am not about to go throwing electrical components across 400amp mains!...

    Funny, the neighbor has a 30hp AR converter over there. It is quiet as a mouse.
    My PP makes way more noise than his rotary. And, the "noise" from the rotary is far more pleasant. The PP is just...

    Yea, I know all about it. Horizontal boring. I was a heavy equipment tech for a while in a former life.
    There are machines that do it for you. "Moles" are what they are known as in the trade. Worked...

    Easier said than done now.
    I put 35 yards of concrete in the way that I am not about to trench through. Just the dirt-work now would be $20k and effectively ruin my apron.
    And, to be painfully...
  16. That is another (VERY) sour subject with me!...

    That is another (VERY) sour subject with me! Documented elsewhere on this site.
    When I was in the process of moving in, and upgrading the service to the property from 200amps to 600amps:
    The...

    After 11 months of keeping the doors open and my guy gainfully employed with hardly any work? It will be a while before I order anything.
    At my current workload for the forseeable future? (which...

    That option is high on the list!

    Especially knowing how much it would cost to replace just one IGBT in a 60hp PP. And, how big of a job it would be :ack2:

    Are you using the Enerpac as a toe-jack? I have been shopping for a jack and skates as I want to rearrange my shop. And was considering a pancake jack over a toe jack.

    Your digs are looking good!

    My neighbor is an accomplished EE. I am going to have to ask him to put a scope on the mains.
    He is just very busy right now, and I am trying to leave him alone.
  21. Looking at this again, because this morning I...

    Looking at this again, because this morning I heard an audible change in the noise emanating from the shop lights when I turned the Phase-Perfect on.
    It has been 8 months since I changed the filter...

    Don't option a Mayfran Clean-Sweep! Esp. if you make any aluminum fines (who doesn't?)
    The haas auger and a chip-trap is worlds better!

    If haas hadn't changed the control, and ditched Coldfire support? And, my local HFO hadn't turned in to a shit-show?
    And, they still had great support and parts prices/availability? I would consider...
