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 it....it was an industrial version but pull start with a rope.....my buddy and I finally took it and hooked it up to power to try out.....we installed start capacitors and a 10 sec relay....so 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 herd.....now 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 This post was edited by mEl at 23:33:35 10/20/13.
