    That depends entirely on loading. If you're not working it hard, the center won't be carrying much... and when you work it harder, it will carry MORE. What happens when you weld for a few more...

    I second Bill's notes, and STERLING is correct... they've got all sorts of other product-type names, ELANTAS PDG, etc.,

    The Eductor is the very same principle as a Penberty Injector used to recharge feedwater of a steam boiler... and the same principle used to draw detergent into a pressure washer. Works great, no...

    It's not that complicated.

    Draw yourself the classic digital-type number 8

    It looks like a three-rung ladder, right?

    The top rung has a coil wrapped around it. Call it "A".

    Aaron... do the right thing... make as much floor space as you can, and sneak a Monarch 10EE in there. Fit it with a VFD, and you'll never, ever, EVER wish you'd done otherwise. ;-)

    My drive

    That's either a Carlisle RPP or Gates Polychain... I don't remember exactly.

    Nothing special about the motor, other than 1800rpm 230/480 of late '50's vintage, nix'd the internal cooling...

    From an operational perspective, there's no reason why you cannot... just space, of course.

    I know this with absolute certainty, as my '43 round-dial runs with an 1800rpm Allis-Chalmers 7.5hp with...

    The difference between operating and Open Circuit voltage, is precisely that- you're 'open' on OCV... no load.

    There NEEDS to be drop in order for it to work properly. 10V isn't a huge drop......

    That axle isn't from a KB, it IS an actual made-for-purpose trailer axle, probably solid, rather than Tubular steel, probably manufactured by Dexter, or one of their competetors. Most likely heated...

    J, most 'open delta' welding transformers are nothing more than two single-phase welding transformers wired together... with one leg of each going to one phase, and the remaining leg of each going to...

    That is most likely a cheap chinese inverter... the lack of a 'brand' is the clue.

    The motor is a reasonable size, and proper speed for modest general-purpose work... it won't be a beast.

    It MOST CERTAINLY CAN.

    If things are shielded well, and your HF component isn't overly strong, and there's plenty of ferrite choke material in the right spots, you MIGHT have it 'tight enough' to...

    There were TWO versions of the Ford 192 industrial. The earlier type is a four-cylinder decendant of the 134/172 lineage.

    Unlike the 192 THREE CYLINDER gas, the 192 four is a remarkably weak...

    Jancy and other manufacturers DO make a variety of arbors to fit their annular cutters, but you'll probably find that metal-cutting annulars will need more torque than a 170rpm reduction from an...

    I don't have your motor... I have the 1hp 'pancake' motor on my J-head, using stock step-pulleys, but I basically leave it in direct-drive (1:1 position). I have my VFD set to 170rpm, and the...

    For a jig borer, that's exactly what I would do... fit a common motor type, and use a VFD. I'd yank the motor's mechanical cooling fan and put a constant-speed fan on it in the process.
