    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?
