Hey lads,

Thanks very much to you all for the advice. I can not wait to get started. Cheers Eric for the number I will chase this up thanks.

I look after a small factory of 7 workers we produce the Tri Air fire damper. We have a little toolroom which I use to produce press tools to help with the manufacture. Here is a little vid of me having a bit play making coin rings.

Cheers Guss.

Hi all ,

I am new to this forum. I am busy getting my workshop off the ground and bought a colchester student round head mk1 lathe off ebay. I was wondering what road to go down as far as running this 3 phase 3hp motor. Should I just convert to 240v single phase motor and fit it, is this a pain to do, or should I purchase an inverter 240v to 3 phase as the lathe is fitted with a dual voltage 240 / 415 motor and run it as it is. Any advice on types of motors, models, inverters and what I may need to do.etc.

I would be most grateful for any advice best regards Gary.
