I don't know about a "restoration" but I'll certainly keep everyone up on my progress getting it back in to operation. I predict that there will be so many future posts you guys will get tired of seeing it. Blush Big Grin

I'll start up another thread for it when I have something interesting, or a plea for help, whichever comes first. Tongue Smile

Maybe I should print that statement out and have it notarized so it can be used in court. Tongue Big Grin I'll start a thread so you guys can have a little comedy relief.

Here is my little effort Blush
Amadeal AMA25LV with MT3

It sits on an old toolbox that i was going to throw on ebay. Took the wheels off and fitted a bit of 1/2 " ply on the base to stiffen it up a little then found some stainless steel commercial kitchen unit legs at the car booty and screwed them on Smile

RE: Let's See Your Mill
Ok so here is mine,

   

As you can see it is also my lathe.

I have a question about all the talk of going 3 phase to get variable speed?17428

my smithy runs on 115v 20 amp with 2hp and variable speed DC other than smother running and a little less draw once running why 3 phase? Chin

RE: Let's See Your Mill
Jerry, 3-phase motors are plentiful and more common. And they use the same frames that are used by single phase motors - so it's just easier to convert to that, rather than converting over to DC I suppose. 17428

Especially if you are running multiple machines as you can power them all from a single rotary phase converter.

I believe DC motors are not as good at the low speeds as a 3-phase motor with a sensorless vector VFD. I'm sure the DC motor experts will correct me if I'm wrong so take it for what it's worth. Smiley-gen163
