You don't need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

how are you going to get around the 3 phase issue, or have you a fair size inverter?
I have an inverter whotsit with it but Alex has talked me into 'VARIABLE FREQUENCY DRIVE INVERTER' which is much smaller and will (apparently) allow me to control the speed electronically aswell as other benefits he tries to lodge in my brain.
The speed on this little beauty is not controlled by changing pulleys like many, its a slip clutch which is quite nice anyway, but that becomes redundant with the new elektrickery thingamajig.

The photo shows it just after we assembled it and by Gum it was heavy - fortunately my manly bike lift allowed us just one hernia each.

Yet to be installed is the back plate and other gubbins. There was a rather natty coolant arrangement but we've removed that in favour of manual application.

Watch this space for more Lathe Lathering Geekiness..

What would be even better is if you know some one who could lay there hands on a inverter. Do the the water board use them by any chance on the pumps :lol:
