    Pushing a glazed abrasive cutoff wheel through the bar will get 1/4" each side of the blade red hot, the mass of cold bar will quench it. Seems reasonable. Max hardness of 1045 is another question

    Look to me simple enough to make that they are not worth hunting for, paying for, waiting for.

    I do not think it will work unless you gear the pump down. If you maintained amps and torque, then doubling the speed/frequerncy of a motor might double the hp, but as the VFD is rated in hp, I...
