    Forging a Chef knife tips

    Hey everyone! It's been a while since I've posted over here. Got a quick question. Does anyone have any tips for forging chef knives? I tried on a piece of 1/4x1 cru forge V. But man it was a bear. This is what I got. Top piece is little over 1.75in wide and 8in long

    Uber grinder

    Watched a video Tracy did back in '14 showcasing the uber grinder and that thing is pretty sweet. I'd love to build a clone. He said it was on his website in the video but I didn't see it. Did he stop carrying it? Thanks gentleman

    Heli coil for aluminum tooling arm

    So I'm building my own grinder well in the "figuring it out " stage. I'm gonna use 2 pieces of 2x2x.250 steel tubing held together with. 250 steel plates. It's alot like the lb1000.

    Vfd selection

    Wow that's alot of info guys I really appreciate it. So with all that being said a 1hp kbac 24d would do the trick as long as I don't go crazy with it right?

    Vfd selection

    I kinda see what your saying ed. Electronics is like a foreign language to me. But as it turns out I won't be getting that 2hp motor anyway. I was going to buy it in ebay but my gut told me not to trust the seller so guess I'm back to square one. I'm thinking about getting a 1hp and the kbac24d...

    Vfd selection

    Thanks for looking that up for me ed. That's what I was figuring is the 2hp will run at 1.5hp on 110v but I gotta go up to 220v to get the full 2hp. I'm a buck 50 soaking wet so I'm sure 1.5hp will be plenty

    Thanks for the advice ed. If I'm not mistaken the kbac will run on 110. I'm electrical retarded so me trying to wire something would end pretty bad

    Vfd selection

    Well the reason for the 2hp baldor is cause I'm getting it for under 80 bucks with free shipping so I don't really wanna pass that up. I think I'll save my pennies for the kbac Here's a pic of the motor I'm getting I haven't bought it yet so if it's a no go let me know please

Specifically the teco fm 50 it says it input voltage is 380-480 and output is 0-480 I only have 110 in my garage. Do...
