My 3 phase install

My Dad sold his shop that he has had since 1987. He gave me a Wells-Index 745 on the way out. I looked into changing the 1hp 3 phase motor to 110V, but that would have cost way too much money. So I bought a phase a matic PAM300-HD converter and installed this in my garage this weekend.

First we had to install a 220V single phase outlet and then wire up the converter.

Here are the pics...

Here is the panel, we added a 30amp breaker and ran the 220 line off of that

We notched out above the panel to run the lines out

Around the back wall of the garage via PVC conduit

To the side opposite of the panel, here is the elegant pine mounting panel!

Phase converter pluged into 220V outlet

The mill pluged into the 3 phase outlet

Here is the mill in my garage, this is an older pic...I made a mobile base so that I can move this thing around helps a little, but man that machine weighs a ton!

I have a South Bend Heavy 10 that is about 75% complete following my restoration, I also just picked up a Delta wood/metal bandsaw.

The first project with all these machines is to make a front wheel cart for this guy...we rescued him from a hoarder FU&K, mom was this old Beagle, dad was a pitt, there was another pitt in the house, all three dogs were not fixed and the house was disgusting. She is 7 weeks old, great dog. She was born with 5 siblings...two died at birth, two were already adopted, she and her brother were left when we got her...

Were fostering her, so if your interested and not a total wack job and are not a selfish turd...let me know if your interested!

We took her to a specialist in Columbus, Ohio...she has no humerus bilateral, as well as no radius bilateral, her ulnas articulate with her scapulas and thats it...great dog though
