Today we’re starting on a 3-phase motor and VFD upgrade to add variable speed to the Grizzly G0602 lathe. We talk though the specifications of the motor and the VFD and wire everything up on the bench for testing. I want to make sure everything is working properly before I take the old motor and wiring out of the lathe.
Here are the parts we’re using in this video:
