    Trauma shears. Serrated edge scissors and dirt cheap. If I don’t have a pair, I tear the sheets.

    If the center stud of the tool post is rotating when you try to loosen the top nut, then the set screw in the T-nut is broken or missing.

    If the tool post still rotates when the center...

    I like the Feit LED shop lights that have similar shape to a fluoro shop light but no tubes. The big box stores sell them for around $20/ea (sold in pairs). I find that they give a decent amount of...

    If my memory serves, 2.5amps at 220 3 phase is around 1HP. That’s right at the max for a 110v single phase input for a VFD but still doable. I tend to over-rate my VFDs a bit, but it might be worth...

    After you get the shaft back from the company who is straightening it for you, I’d be curious to know if they did it cold or flame straightened it.

    The recommendation of an electrician was an attempt to have you keep all the bells and whistles. That box looks professionally wired and it shouldn’t take them long to convert it.

    If it looks like gobblygook on the inside instead of transformers, contactors, etc, then I would recommend getting an electrician to convert it to 220v 3ph for you. It’s not super cheap, but if your...

    11G mild steel SMAW/MMA should be no problem. 14g is a little harder with a buzz-box but still very doable. I would second Clive's suggestion to get a modern inverter. If you're worried about the...

    I would vote no.
    1) The idealarc line is a beast and it's rated for some serious amperage. If you actually needed that level of amperage, then you would most likely have 3 phase power already. ...

    I was wondering the same thing. I haven't heard of an original Rivett turret attachment for the 1020 or 1030 lathes, but we all know about their documentation.

    Fuses: those are 30A fuses and would imply 220v power since 30A is way to much for that lathe at 440v.
