Watch out for the 3 phase electric if it is to be used in a home shop. Have read about 3 phase converters but do not know anything more than that. Also watch government surplus sale for good used equipment. It may need cleaned up but the quality is top notch. http://www.govliquidation.com/ plus it is interesting to see what our tax dollars were spent on.

it is early in the bidding and most likely will get much higher. Unless you have a 3 phase service in your shop, this wont do you any good. A phase converter costs a lot and to runt his will cost a big buck.

I’ve got 2 3-phase converters. One on my table saw 5hp and I also use it on a 5HP planer at times.

The other one is a 12 HP but is not hooked up because I don’t have any 12 Hp tools. I was planning to make a rotary phase converter out of it. Maybe some day. The junk yard owner got rid of the 10 hp motor I was going to use. It was brand new and he sold it for scrap.

They work fine. great I might add. I ran across a 3 phase lathe the other day, but I don’t know if I want it or not.

I’m curious how much the belts for something like this would cost and how easy they would be to find. I imagine you would have to have a set of various grits like any other sander or is that not the case with something like this?
