    VFD Question- KBAC 24D

    Hey Dogs, Sorry for the rookie question, but I am unfamiliar with electrical wiring and the VFD especially. I am in the process of wiring up my VFD to the motor, and wondered about grounding it. In the below photo, would it be okay to ground the motor to the red circle? Or would it be better...

    Disk grinder thoughts?

    Hello Dogs, I wanted some input on purchasing a disk grinder within the next few weeks. Currently my plan was to buy a setup from Wayne Coe, and add on the table system from Beaumont and the Nielsen hub as well. I've considered the vari speed version of the TG92, but wanted more working...
