Well the last few days have been busy getting commissioning done on the Felder. One of the big jobs is providing 3 phase power for the machine. Several options exist to do this, I chose a rotary Phase Converter from American Rotary in WI. I bought a ADX10 model thinking I may want to get a 3 phase dust collector someday.

The Phase converter is 2 parts a control box with electrical wizardry inside and a Motor Generator to make the 3 leg of the 3 phase. Requires a 60 amp 240 V single phase to feed the magic box. I did not want the Generator sitting on the floor in the dirt so I made a box/ shelf to mount it on the wall. Today's challenge was getting the whole thing onto the wall. I did not realize how much I had forgotten about rope rescue from the Firefighter days. I was able to figure out a pulley system and with a neighbor get the whole thing on the wall. I am looking forward to having some power and see the machine run.

While waiting on the electrician I decided to make some sliding table T Track from Walnut scraps.

Make sure your t slot stock isnít too tight, or it will expand in the slot and be a bugger to get out. I made some dovetail filler strip for my Northfield and ended up running a router down the middle to get it out.

I've been thinking about tapping and bolting down some alloy mitre track in my northfield's tablesaw dovetail mitre track. I may have to fill the sides with something to avoid any kind of deflection.
An Incra mitre fence is much better than the Northfield offering. Ive also thought about having a dovetail mitre bar machined to fit on an Incra, but leaning towards the conventional mitre track as it accommodates many jigs and fixtures.

Rutagr,

Good point! I did leave some slop mostly to make it easy to move, where I live the odds of wood expanding are slim to nil it is so dry.

The Walnut T-nuts were for holding clamps and a Aux handle to the slider. Today's end result photos attached, well looks like I can't attach after all, not sure why?

I used them to hold a pair of Kreg Automax clamps, it works very well.

Well now the bid for installing the American Rotary Phase Converter came in at 1166.00 with out the permit, about twice my budget.

I am going to have to find another plan for installing the thing....

Wiring for the phase unit is very straight forward and has clear instructions, might pull a permit and do it myself. stay tuned for next weeks adventures.
