    I operated 4 individual gear-motors off a single VFD for 27 years with no runs, drips or errors. None were individually over current protected..just a single VFD program setting for all 4, and they...

    Personally...I blame the epidemic on bum Chicom monkey brains...maybe rabid anteaters too! Never trust an anteater with foaming jowls.

    The very first idea to pop into my feeble mind would be a stroke sander with an aggressive belt. You could apply sanding pressure to weld bead areas and avoid areas that need no sanding/grinding.

    Yikes...it started with Chicom monkey brains and has now transitioned to politics, with a dash of roasting anteater thrown in for good measure. What's the world coming to?:willy_nilly:

    I would first make sure there was adequate coolant in the machine, the thermostat was working properly and that the vaporizer was being heated by said 'warm' coolant. After that...no clue!

    Steve,

    McMaster-Carr has a large selection of friction materials to choose from. Any 2 part epoxy from the hardware store will bond the friction material to a clean surface.

    Kevin,

    Welcome to the forum. That material work hardens pretty easily and using a hole saw too fast will be the kiss of death. Annular cutters that large are very expensive and you would need the...

    It isn't necessary to remove the adapter plate. The coupling attached to the pump will fit thorough the hole machined in the plate. Simply remove the pump with the coupling half attached. Now that...

    To utilize one of the "drill" style impacts or drivers, you would either have to be 9 feet tall or your mill will have to be 3 feet tall.:eek:

    Some unsolicited comments. If this setup is to be used for a log splitter I sure would pick a much better, two stage pump. Having said that, the current pump and coupling method become moot and...

    I could be wrong, but looking at the problem from a common sense, mechanical standpoint, it would not require long special wrenches or a contortionist to assemble the thing. The pump bolts to the...

    It may not matter for your particular job, but the repair will probably be a different color than the original material.

    Looking at one of the pictures of the large adapter plate it appears there are some threaded holes that are not meant to attach the plate but to back it off..much like an electric motor on a...

    No problems as long as the larger VFD has O/L programming parameters that allow it to be dialed down (FLA) to the smaller load.
