    Well I was wrong (maybe) about the unit being home made so this may be fake news as well, but the color of the pump and all the fancy safety wiring almost make it appear to be military surplus. Maybe...

    That really should be a easy and fun part to make yourself.

    It sure looks home made to me. I can't believe a company would manufacture something in a tinny little barrel and mount a big fat motor on the drum head and poke controls and plumbing through the...

    The sophisticated infrastructure just to put all the car stuff together is mind blowing. Somewhere in that factory is a rack of PLC's the size of a Greyhound bus and a huge room full of programmers....

    Brian,

    I've worked on both large wood versions and small metal versions. Along with (metal) the drum rotating in the direction of feed, there is a whole bunch of coolant stuff that goes along with...

    Much as I hate to do this, I'm going to flog this dead horse a little bit more. Looking at the stuff in front of me, I see the little 5 volt wall wart charger for the digital scale and it's tagged...
  8. Bill, Thank you. Stuart Edit. Further...

    Bill,

    Thank you.

    Stuart

    Edit. Further scrutiny of the little 5v wall wart thingy lists its input voltage as 120-240volts.

    Bill,

    Just to crystal clear, using a wall wart rated for 120-240 volt input, connected to two legs of a 240v-3 phase circuit will get me what I want..without smoke!

    Magic aside Cal...looking at two legs of household 240 voltage with a scope, you'll see the sine waves out of phase 180 degrees. Same scope but hooked to two legs of a 3 phase supply, your scope will...
  11. Bill, Thank you. So what I think you are...

    Bill,

    Thank you. So what I think you are saying is that connecting a transformer to two legs of a 3 phase system is no different than connecting a transformer to two legs of a single phase (240v)...

    Because I don't undertand the finer points of electricity I simply ordered a traditional control transformer with a 240/480 primary and a 120/240 secondary. I've used a ton of them and understand how...

    I'm still a bit confused. The facility my machine will be delivered to will supply 240 volt 3phase which will be 3 wires with a 4th wire as a equipment ground. There is no neutral to my knowledge...

    Bill,

    The little DRO is a Chinese, single axis cheapo that serves a purpose for me on this particular machine..it operates on two watch batteries but has the ability to plugged into its little...
  15. Searching for a small step down transformer.

    I have a machine that's connected to 240v-3phase. There is a onboard DRO that has a small 120v wall-wart type power supply. I would like to find a very small transformer with a 240v primary and a...

    Thermally protected indicates the manufacturer has buried a thermistor in the windings and pulled the wires out so the customer has the option to use them to trip the load in a overheat situation....

    So it would be safe to say, that not only do we have 'practical machinists' on the forum, but horologists and interior decorators as well.:)

    My question was meant as a serious one, and it's been...

    Well...I didn't think of that but I'll bet you are correct. There aren't the plethora of scattered tools that might indicate a removal from a car or truck.

    Those are the belts to use. They are skinny, but stronger than heck..you will not be able to break them with any normal tensioning system.

    Those are amazing pictures, thank you for sharing them. Looking at the massive amount of line shafts makes my heart ache for the poor fellow that had to keep them greased properly, what a chore.
