Well I built a shop on my property so that I can eventually move my equipment to the house and work from home as well as save some money. My question is I have 3 cnc mills and 2 small gang tool lathes as well as 2nd opp equipment. Trying to figure out if any of you are running a few machines on phase converters.. I have a 99 fadal 4020 20hp, 1999 haas vf-ext 15 hp and 2007 fadal 3016 need to check hp on that one. the 2 lathes are 3-5 hp units. Most likely wont be running all the machine at the same time. I plan on installing a 400 amp service in the shop, although it would be single phase coming in. Trying to figure out what size converter people are getting away with running a few machines. Any input or advise would be greatly appreciated!
