I have poked around the site from time to time and have been meaning to post a few things but never got around to it. Now I need some help and hope some one here knows the answers and will be willing to share them.
Some one wants to give me an old dewalt radial arm saw. its pretty big and has a 7.5 hp motor. I am pretty certain its 3 phase. What size phase convertor would I need for this? Would a 3hp rotary convertor power this saw and not damage it (or the convertor) if I didn't care about achieving maximum horse power or is it going to burn up the motor on the saw or convertor if the phase convertor is to small?
Its not a bad looking saw but takes up a lot of room. I would like to have it because it looks like it will have a wicked cross cut. Any info would be great. Thanks for the help in advance.
