    I just got a call from them yesterday asking for my email to send me their contact info. I wonder if they changed their sales staff pay to a more commission based model?

    Last time I went...

    Do you have this thing posted for sale locally? It is not going to be economical to ship this ever, and I just sold a Chicago 10ft x 16g for $2500 in less than a week on craigslist out here.

    When you make a post click on the icon of the little tree in a picture frame (just above the text box) to upload a picture.

    This just came up a few weeks ago, and people scoffed at the hole saw then too. This works, and like anything else if you do not know what you are doing it will not work.

    I got all excited this morning when a crew pulled outside the shop. They told me when I asked that they were here to dig the holes for the new poles, and when I asked when the poles were going in he...

    x2 Just because the OP is probably spamming is no reason for us to not be honest and talk about how junk there stuff is. I feel like there are buys I would make (and have), but they are few and far...

    The only problem with the purchase of a hardcopy QB is that they only provide support for 3years I believe. Support as in connecting with bank accounts, and other outside sources that make a modern...

    That is where I can set the primary taps on my transformer to help keep me at 208 or above most of the time hopefully. If need be I can always install another smaller 240v transformer for a piece of...

    Just imagining having the pedal cutout in the middle of a weld makes me frustrated already. If I had more money laying around I would probably get one, because why not I guess. Though until the...

    Thanks for all the replies. I have done more reading elsewhere too, and will stop worrying about it for now. The welders should all adjust for the 208v as far as I can tell, and the new mini-splits...

    So does the lightning tap setup then only provide 1/3 the rated KVA output worth of 120/240 1ph?




    The only concerning appliances to me are the 230v mini-split AC's and the Inverter welders. ...

    Thanks for all the replies. Let me try to clarify what I am doing.

    I currently have a 200amp 1ph service and nothing else on this property where we are doing the improvements. I now have a need...

    Can you elaborate on how this is possible please?

    Does anybody have any input on the 208v vs 240v situation? Thanks
  17. Unless you install two services to the building...

    Unless you install two services to the building you still need to step-down somewhere to run 120v and 208-240v power. The balancing of the phases does not seem to be an issue to anyone at the PC,...

    Surely this price was given after* you told them that your other option was over $5k? As others have pointed out a radiator shop could repair, or make you a custom for much less. No need for...
  20. Getting a 480v service installed, step down to 208 or 240?

    I am in the process of getting a 480v 3ph service installed on a shop property. I told the electrician doing the work that I wanted to step back down to 240/120, and re-feed the existing 240/120 1ph...

    I have the machine here now, but haven't had a chance to look it over very in depth. I also can't hook it to power for a few weeks at the minimum anyhow.

    The mechanics look like they are in good...
