    VFD & Motor close on the horizon

    Well I am looking into a turn key VFD & Motor system that I can mount plug in & start using Put together by the Motor shop I've done business with for years. I figure that I can use this on my Delta Double duty lathe Until I get ready & then build my own bowl lathe & move the VFD & Motor to it.

    I like the Delta 46-460 but I also like the Delta double duty lathe I have now & it allows me to be able to turn on the outside of the head which will make it possible to turn bigger then 10 1/2" - 11" that can be turned over the bed ways & bigger then the 12 1/2" of the Delta 46-460.

    So if this VFD & motor system has the slow power I need I can turn the way I want too & save up to build a bowl lathe.
