Re: Want to change to 220V - 3 phase motor

The shipping to my house would be over $260, according to the estimate on Ebay, which, of course, is ridiculous. Perhaps it would be less if I only asked him to sell me and ship me the motor.  My only hesitancy is that the name "worldwide electric" as opposed to Baldor is not recognizeable to me.

You would be paying a premium for the 10L parts that come with it that you already have.

In addition the shipping to my house, not far from yours, is $ 235,

Look here:

$100 plus $41.55 shipping


https://www. surpluscenter. com/item. asp?UID=20091207 18405829&item=10-2385&catname=electric


$113 plus $43.15

Now I am not sure about the shaft size you need. They are both 5/8 but 7/8 motors are available.

In order to use a VFD for control, I'm contemplating replacing the reliance 115V motor that came with my 10L, contacter and push button switch box with a 220V 3 phase motor that is controlled by a VFD that converts my 220V 1 phase house current to 220V 3 phase output.
