I'm thinking of changing out the Motors on my lathe and mill to VFD's and 3 phase. Anyone out there have any specific suggestions as to motor model numbers and VFD model numbers. I would be going from 220 Single phase to 3 phase. Thanks.

I'm sure a lot of people here know what motors are on your machine already, but I ain't one of them.
If you want to wait for one of those guys, that's fine.
If you want my help, I need to know for each motor you want to replace:
  • Shaft size
  • Motor frame/mounting pattern
  • Nameplate data:
    • amps
    • volts
    • rpm
    • etc
    • (Easiest to just post a pic)
  • what's your budget?
  • Do you want encoder feedback?
