    HCs are usually 1HP or 1.5HP.

    His Hardinge HC almost certainly wonít work by hooking the output from a VFD as the input of the lathe.
    Hardinge electrical cabinets have all sorts of circuits that are not motors.

    #2 is a good point.

    Congratulations!
    Chuckers are great machines, especially if youíre doing production. You can think of them almost as hand-cranked predecessors to CNC lathes.

    Oh yeah!
