baldwin racing said: (quoted from post at 20:09:41 10/20/13) when I bought my Bridgeport series 1 j head mill I received a 5 hp rotory phase converter along with was an industrial version but pull start with a buddy and I finally took it and hooked it up to power to try out.....we installed start capacitors and a 10 sec now you just click the button and it fires right up.....this does not look like much but it runs very quiet un like a lot of others that I have I will be able to install it in my shop and I will be able to run my Bridgeport,linley vertical mill/drill press and my south bend lathe that all run 3 phase...I only have single phase coming in my shop...


I will mounting the start switch on my shop wall temporary I mounted on my converter box to make shure it all worked.....

That's exactly the setup I use only mine is just a standadr 5 hp motor, start caps, timer, relay and all. Only a second is all it takes for mine to fire. Works well. mEl

Jmo, but id throw all that crap in the scrap heap, install a $180 VFD (smaller than a 6-pack) & proceed to save 70% on the power bill. Old ways arent always best, just a thought.

Lots of nice features available too. Over current protection, under voltage protection, ramp start, ramp stop, coast stop, breaking, reverse, infinite speed adjustment, etc.

IF you had to go buy something, a drive is the way to go.
