Hi folks, I may have the opportunity to trade my Myford S7 lathe for a Boxford 11.30 Industrial lathe. I am not particularly familiar with these Boxfords so if anyone has one, or has experience with one it would be great to hear what you think of it.
At present I'm not sure if it is single or three phase. If it is three phase I would need to purchase a VFD to run it. If it is three phase it should have a 1.5hp (1.1kW) motor, do I just need to get a 1.5hp VFD or do I need to go higher?
Any advice/ info about these lathes is welcome.
