    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...
  4. 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...
  8. 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...

    What job would one be doing that required them to always carry a pocket level?

    This isn't a CNC project..just old fashioned handle turning and sketches on wet bar napkins, but it is a project none the less! Not finished yet and not skinned with sheet-metal, but it's a bar...

    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.

    On further inspection of the goofy photo and to add credence to my 'fake news' appraisal, it would appear the engine is actually hanging bass-ackwards from how a typical engine might be removed from...

    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.

    I certainly would think 'sawing' before I thought 'shearing'. A stout motor and well designed carbide blade with a water spray mounted on a carriage moving with the flow of material. The 3 second...

    Maybe I don't get the full gist of the press idea, but the mast cylinder on a typical forklift is single acting. Hydraulics shove it up, but Mr. Gravity brings it down. How would that work for a shop...
