    I am using the part number:
    ISE30A-NO1-P

    I have another one in a SMC box. It is the ISE30-T1-65-L. Somebody wrote down the McMaster part number on the box: 3167K14.

    Be sure to buy a 2K ohm linear taper potentiometer and not a non-linear one. Connect the three wires without any resistor. That's all there is to it.

    Agree with Froneck. I have reduced the length of NPT taps to enlarge a non-through hole.

    In general it is double the size.

    5.5Kw x 1 Hp/.746kw = 7.37 Hp

    A 10 to 15 Hp idler motor is what you will need.

    I could use a 6' length of angle iron and use that as a tool rest. It would be angled to produce the taper.
    Taking light cuts would make it a easy job. A lot easier than turning a pool cue.

    Call the 1-800 parts number and listen to how the recording pronounces the name. That should settle it.

    The effort to start a 5Hp vs 10Hp motor is less in parts and energy.
    Whether the parts equate to more capactiors, a larger idler, or a pony motor for a RPC. Or a larger VFD. That's the savings.

    Sounds like you are 2/3 the way there. But the answer is no.
    If you choose to phase shift one of the lines with external capacitors you might be able to get something close.
    I would not do that...

    You know about the derate factor for using a VFD on single phase.
    -- A 7.5Hp motor does not equate to a 7.5Hp VFD. More like a 10 or 15Hp VFD.
    -- Transform 220v to 415v just for the sake of the VFD?

    When I use a dust collector with a surface planer the air flow through the planer hood causes the planer to howl like you wouldn't believe.
    Without the air hose the planer is much quieter.

    Cool video. I picked up a fact or myth about adding a little soap. The soap is used as a lubricant inside the tube as it moves in the bend process.
