    Good job of pressing onward in spite of naysayers.....
    Even proved it with a weld
    That is a very unique machine you have. Too bad all 3 phase units can't be similar.
    I run any miller inverters we have on 3 phase almost all the time.

        Not only do I have 3 phase, it is 800 amp service at that.
        I just lucked out renting the place and then buying it from the bank after the landlord signed it over to them.

          I called the power company a couple years ago and asked about getting 3 phase brought in to the shop, the guy in their engineering department said, "no problem! $15,000."

          ...no thanks.

            I had the same experience. For that price, you could buy a Bobcat 3-Phase and a LOT of gas.

              Same here. 15, 000 just for the transformers.

                That's exactly what it was! I like Wayne's idea...bobcat 3-phase is on the list!

                ...ya, not really. I'll just suffer through on single phase, like the low rent fab/repair shop I am...

                  lol. I'm in the same boat. American rotary makes some nice 3 phase converters. They claim 5% max voltage variation between phases which they say is as good as the power company.
