    BILL,

    Your nutso syco-bable is going to drive the OP over the edge for Gods sake! It's obvious you haven't been there..or even remotely done that, or you wouldn't be saying the shit you're saying....

    Kevin,

    Welcome to the forum. That material work hardens pretty easily and using a hole saw too fast will be the kiss of death. Annular cutters that large are very expensive and you would need the...

    It isn't necessary to remove the adapter plate. The coupling attached to the pump will fit thorough the hole machined in the plate. Simply remove the pump with the coupling half attached. Now that...

    To utilize one of the "drill" style impacts or drivers, you would either have to be 9 feet tall or your mill will have to be 3 feet tall.:eek:

    Methinks this is why the OP requested a ratchet...

    A power drawbar is the better way to go but companies like Kurt want your first born. Granted, those types work well but let me say this...the inexpensive ones you see all over Ebay work almost as...

    Some unsolicited comments. If this setup is to be used for a log splitter I sure would pick a much better, two stage pump. Having said that, the current pump and coupling method become moot and...

    I could be wrong, but looking at the problem from a common sense, mechanical standpoint, it would not require long special wrenches or a contortionist to assemble the thing. The pump bolts to the...

    It may not matter for your particular job, but the repair will probably be a different color than the original material.

    Joe,

    Looking at one of the pictures of the large adapter plate it appears there are some threaded holes that are not meant to attach the plate but to back it off..much like an electric motor on a...

    Won't it be the absolute drizzling shits when "Fu Chow Industries" purchases McMaster-Carr and we all have to start eating fish heads and fried rice.:eek:

    As I mentioned in a previous post in this thread..this ain't CNC, more akin to "fabra-cobble" but that's my bag baby! I built this pyramid roll probably 30 years ago to roll brass rings for several...

    No problems as long as the larger VFD has O/L programming parameters that allow it to be dialed down (FLA) to the smaller load.

    As they say "been there, done that", and as mentioned above..it didn't work worth a damn.:eek:

    True hardened, precision shaft shows a straightness of .002 per foot, Thompson 60 precision shaft shows .001 per foot, so knowing that, I would doubt than TG&P shafting is going to be any better than...

    Man........a static phase converter is so cheap and so easy. The slight loss in HP will never be noticed on a hefty saw like a Delta. Hate to keep beating my drum but it really is a super simple...

    I notice you're located in Alaska so this may be bum info. Almost any reputable motor shop has a bin full of fans they've removed from junk motors as well as generic fans with a universal hole for...

    I believe the NEMA numbers indicate the environment rating of the enclosure, nothing to do with the physical size.

    I would call them 'flush mount electrical enclosures'..but those items are...

    I run my 3 phase uni-saw via a static phase converter and it works perfectly. It uses the stock electrical components and was very simple and inexpensive to do.
