  5. How can I clean the splatter off tight close quarter places

    I am new to welding, and this is my first sculpture. Want to clean the splatter off and paint this. Not sure what is available other than sandpaper or if sandpaper would even work.

  10. Plasma cutter with phase converter

    Can I run a plasma cutter on a phase converter? I have a 7.5hp and 20 hp phase converter. I just need to figure out what size the plasma cutter is. A neighbor has one for sale, need to know what is...
  11. Need electrical help with a machine using 3phase and single phase.

    So trying to get a machine running. Here is the wiring diagram, looks like a 3 phase contactor and motor, but looks like everything else is single phase. Can I run this from a phase converter?

    Been sitting on another project I have wanted to get done. Cut the angle iron a long time ago. Today I was not sure what to do. So I welded this together.

    I am in this material for probably $3 I...

    Got all 450 micro farads split between L1 and ghost and L2 and ghost. When I pulled a amp draw before I turn on the planer, I get 20 amp, on L1 and L2, and when I turn the planer on, the amps drop to...

    Also when starting the planer, it bogged down the idle motor a lot as well. Took a few seconds for them both to jump up to speed
  16. Cool, I bumped it back up to 120 micro farads and...

    Cool, I bumped it back up to 120 micro farads and it started the planer. Should I run the planer and check voltage? Maybe I will need to bump the capacitance up a little more.
  17. Well it didnt start the planer. And now for some...

    Well it didnt start the planer. And now for some reason my laser tach meter doesnt want to work, so I cant tell what speed the motor is running at either

    I just dropped capacitance from each side to 90 micro farads, and I am now 148 between L1 amd L2 and 150 and 151 between both and the ghost leg.

    The motor is a 20hp 3450rpm does this sound right...
  19. Needing slightly more help on Phase converter.

    So I watched a good Youtube video on building phase converters. Which helped me significantly figure this out.

    So I am currently at 120 micro farad between L1 and ghost leg, as well as 120 micro...

    Ive got to figure out if this machine is 3 phase. I assume it is since it has a 3phase plug... but wanted to double check. I cant see any info on the pump and electronics.

    Is there a good link to something that goes over the theory on how to build these?

    There are so many different plans that just make things confusing
    If I can understand the theory better while...

    Well apparently I have something off. I am not getting 240 between T1 and the generated leg, but getting it between T2 and the generated leg.

    European motor needs wirkng help

    I got my phase converter finally running today.

    I assume the planer may be wired for 480 and not 240.

    There is no diagram that says how to convert it back and forth.
    If anyone knows, help...

    Thanks that was it! I disconnected that 3rd leg, and it stayed spinning. My rpm gauge had it at 3600 rpm

    My voltage is 248ish to that leg.

    So no capacitor goes to the 3rd leg of the phase convertor motor?
