The motor I bought is a this one. The VFD I bought is this one. I hope I got this right. If not I'll send the VFD back and get a different one.
I'm thinking it could be beneficial to have a 2 HP VFD coupled to the 1 1/2 HP motor. I understood that part correctly (I think). But I see what you...
I'm convinced that the KBAC VFD is the way to go for a VFD. I'm still mulling over a motor, but most likely will get an Iron Horse. I figure if I get a 1 1/2 HP motor now and upgrade to 220 later I can use the 1 1/2 for a disc grinder, which I've been wanting.
No...I've never felt like I've pushed the limit of the motor at all. For the most part I grind fairly slowly and lightly .
Hmm I didn't know you could do that with the KBAC...the jumper that is. That's a good idea. I think I'll look at a 3ph 1.5hp motor and the VFD. That sounds much simpler.
Earlier this week the 1 1/2 HP motor on my grinder died. I thought at first a bearing had gone out, so I took it partially apart and the bearings looked OK. So I took the motor down to a local repair shop and they found a short in the winding's. They quoted me $400.00 to rewind the motor...
Cool stuff. I've played with AutoCAD LT a bit...but not enough to really do much with it. Plus I can't afford a personal copy. Fusion 360 is a good tool from everything I've seen. Your work with it is very good.
