Still a beginner. Aside from my day job, I spent the last 4 years renovating a 1928 Dutch Colonial on Long Island. I did everything myself, with the exception of a few things that i needed another set of hands for. This gave me the opportunity to do things i never thought i could do, such as electrical work, plumbing, paint stripping, painting, window replacement, plaster moldings, masonry work, and my favorite - carpentry.

In renovating my home I have accumulated a lot of tools. Since i was not paying any contractors to do the work, I was able to justify spending money on tools. Over the past few months I have been building a workshop in my basement.

I’m in the same boat as you with a good deal on a 5hp 3ph table saw that I could not pass up. I have been doing some reading/researching on the VFD’s but I can’t find one to fit my needs. Any suggestions on what company or companies to contact? Thanks

Have your say...
