    Maker likely expected the load motor would have its own contactor in the machine, which accounts for no output contactor. That is pretty much how it would be if the machine/motor were wired to a 3...

    Yeah, that was another item on the list. It just keeps going... there is way more missing than is left. Makes a person wonder about all the hidden things that do not show in the photos.

    Not an issue... the seller is the clueless (or greedy) person in this.

    Those 1020s seem like a very nice machine comparable to a 10EE.... Much more generally useful than the 608, which is a...

    There is so little left of it that it is really a parts machine in many ways. The entire change gear setup is missing, the tool holder is totally wrong. The headstock appears to be set up for...

    While this is probably good advice, not knowing details, the braking is not more violent than acceleration, I have tested similar sized machines and was unable to get a 6" or a 5: chuck to...

    I have a few, I get 'em for a couple bucks at estate sales. Dirty ones go for cheap. Nice shiny ones cost money. All of them work the same, and there are rags and water everywhere.....

    If all you have is a 4 way transformer, going in with 115 on the 480 winding, coming out the 240 and leaving that for 30 min or so, then 115 into 240:240 winding, leaving that for 30 min or so, then...

    1", eh? That's more than I have. As far as I know that (my) machine has a 10" saddle etc, but they are so close that they probably interchange. I have a t-slot crosslide from an 11", and it fits...

    It may not turn on. When testing those, I have always used a "4 way" transformer, 120/240 to 240/480. other than that, no damage from a basic test of turn on and run. Some can refuse to work if...

    What's your distance from compound to spindle center? Some may be larger, my 200 is smaller than most in that dimension.

    That thing really does look very well made and is quite "pretty". Seems too small for practical use, might it be some sort of sample piece or the like?

    Maybe not so fast....

    The 200 is really too small for the toolposts. Yes a 10" is big enough, but the distance from compound to spindle center is tiny, like 0.875". iI's marginal on clearance...

    it was pretty expensive at one time for balloons and Zeppelins, when it was a product of zinc and acid.... So, in essence, probably yes.

    The real intent is to make "cars" rare and very expensive....

    The serious problem with hydrogen or any other such fuel that must be "created" by some process that itself takes energy, is that it cannot compete.

    I would have suggested a commercial line filter, BUT.... remember,...

    One very good feature is that it limits...

    Good chance Bill (9100) has it nailed.

    Thing of it is, the potential relays USUALLY have a large margin between the pull-in and the drop-out voltage, often nearly 100 volts, so there could be...

    If you happened to have a way to supply 460 V thru a VFD, and you had a 230/460 motor, then you could indeed set the VFD to 120Hz and 460V, with the motor still set for 230V. That would get you a 10...
