    so you are essentially using the controls on the lathe. I like that. So for the different speeds in the gear box do you just pick the rpm that is close and then fine tune with the vfd? or how does...

    ya I know about the pulses per revolution etc. I somewhat understand what you mean about the centifugal start switch but what happened while you were turning? Did it just cut out on you? or what...

    Thanks. I didn't know that VFD can go single to 3 phase if not rated for it... I guess that's why they are suggesting a 10hp one to handle the extra amperage.

    Do you have any pictures of your set...

    I like the RPC and transformer idea, except the cost, which is more than I paid for the lathe itself at like $3100 CAN.

    If I rewind the motor I have to 240V 3 phase, at 5hp I still have 15amps...

    Well the reason I am asking is that I have to make the best decision for my application.. I am not worried about someone elses at the moment, as I don't plan on selling this right now as I just...

    it runs smoother? So less vibrations? Are the motors balanced when they are built or rebuilt? So the surface finish will look a bit worse. Hmmmm, that seems like its more theoretical given a 3...

    Ya the transformer on there is for the coolant pump and DRO so you can just plug everything into the lathe and move it around. That's not a big deal to me.

    I have attached a picture of the motor...

    The motor is not dual voltage. I don't have a picture of how many wires come out of the motor wiring box, but can get one... but I know it's not a dual voltage unit. See attached for the transformer...

    The motor isn't really standard. It looks like it was a 213T with a metric 112M base on it. The shaft is longer than a standard 213T. The motor shop I have been talking to said it was probably...

    I looked at the rotary phase converter options, but they recommend a 3:1 ratio for horse power rating. So since my motor is 5hp, I would need a 15hp rotary phase converter and that would be...

    to get the motor rewound is about $500CAN or $350US at a place here in Mississauga Ontario. Then I know i have something that fits and is the correct RPM size etc. Just need to figure out all the...

    Thanks for the information.. My motor doesn't have the 220v three phase options and there is no nameplate on the motor to even see what frame size or rpm, etc, it is. Thats why I figured it would be...

    Sorry I am not sure how to turn the photos when attaching them
  15. converting Keiyo Seiki to run on single phase 220V help

    Hello all, this is my first post on the site and I am looking for some help.

    I just picked up a beautiful a 5hp Keiyo Seiki KM1800 17"x48" lathe that runs on 3 phase 600V and I would like to...
