    You're right. I could just remove the hook from the end of the chain, attach a length of new chain to the end of the old one, pull through, and attach the hook back onto the new chain. I could even...

    Yes, I never like to strain myself, because it's dangerous, and actually pointless! You have to have a method and tools whether it's 200 lb or 2000 lb. Anything else is a disaster waiting to happen....

    That's pretty cool from a woman. LOL!

    Well it looks like I'm not gonna run into any problems just running the 10hp idler without any caps to power up to 3hp max load motors, most likely 1-2hp...

    Jim,
    I'll keep that in mind. I'll have to buy at least one clamp-on meter to have though. I think it would make a nice addition to my Amprobe muultimeter and would come in handy for all kinds of...

    I think I'll go ahead and wire up this 415V delta motor for wye, and put 240 across ONE winding (i.e line to star point), so it will act as a ''step up RPC'' as JST put it. There is only one way to...

    Johansen,
    Thanks for the info. I don't know if you watched the video that I linked to (11 minute mark) but I was wondering if connecting 240V single phase between the line and neutral of a wye wired...

    Thanks for the post, it is encouraging to hear you've had success with RPC for such a long time.

    I just bought a 10 hp 4-pole 1500 RPM (50 hz) for an idler. Nameplate says 380-440 Delta, but the...
  8. Thank you all for your input in this thread....

    Thank you all for your input in this thread. After thinking about it, I realize it was mostly a theoretical day dream, of walking in the shop, flicking s switch to a single phase motor, and having...
  9. Tom, thanks for the input. I figured that would...

    Tom,
    thanks for the input. I figured that would be the case, the driving motor size on single phase seems to be the limiting factor. But If I can put something together that will start and run up...

    Unless I'm mistaken, aren't generators different from a 3-phase motor used in an RPC?
  11. 3 phase generator driven by single phase motor

    Hi all,
    I've been wondering if it's possible to drive a 3-phase generator with a suitably sized single phase motor, to provide 3-phase for a shop? I'm thinking a ''motor-generator'' set up, but to...
