I was browsing surplus center and found quite a few goodies. Was thinking of ordering a few for my upcoming projects but I don't know how good of quality they are.
The first motor here cough my eye. It looks like a way to good of deal to me
but it is nearly 1kW... Anybody ordered from them or been inside? Only surplus place I have been is Princess Auto and its horrible quality everything...
120VDC 1HP Motor Wired with breaker, reciter, cord and switch seems like an amazing deal I would like to put this on any of my lathes or small mills a simple $15 scr controller I build last week would work great.
In case it wont they have DC motor controllers back in stock. I believe these where the ones people where using to replace the defective ones on their x3's?
1HP Shunt Motor Would this work well on a 10x22? Its only ~850W but as its 3450RPM with some gearing it would be more powerful.
For the big guns a motor for RF45 or Tormach sized machines Thats one beefy 3.5HP DC motor. You would need to build a housing with bearings to support the rotor but thats trivial. A few 36V transformers in parallel would be needed but would only draw max 20A from a 120v line (I would use 240v personally)
And lastly I was checking out phase converters and seen many rotary types and found them pretty nifty but for this price why bother!
