Doing this also comes with other hassles like tariff is higher for 3 phase and I'd be pulling mostly just from one phase costing me more to run house and rest of shop. Then I have the potential of Counsil hassling me why I have 3 phase in a domestic building.! . . . Can of worms I don't need.
I can run the motor from 240v no problem thru VFD but obviously I loose torque. i've had it running from 2.2Kw VFD already and with a little help from Jonathan I tweaked the V/Hz ratio and got it running with decent amount of torque at nominal speeds which is 33hz for de-rated setup. This still gave 1800rpm and couldn't stop the motor. But at higher speeds it dropped away to point not usable.
But with 5.5Kw Vfd then I might be able to live with the de-rated torque and still have enough for smaller cutters at higher speeds.?
That said I don't see the point of having a MONSTER MIll that performs like Fairy so would like it to be all it can be.!! . . . . If that means Aldi Beans on toast for several months then so it must be.!!
About bloody time!
You are right Dean it's not moved, what I was going to do this summer!

Any updates on how the chinese servos and drives are performing?
