This machine was offered for sale by an older gentleman. He had purchased it from an auction when a school district ended its industrial arts program. The motor is 1.5 HP, 220 Volt, 3 Phase and he never got around to changing it to a single phase motor. It is in excellent condition except for a cut in the top belt guard where it has sanded through and a lobe is broken off the T-handle on the belt adjustment knob. The belt bed is in very good shape - flat and smooth. All the electricals are in place for 3 Phase. The paint is in pretty good shape, but I intend to restore this machine. I have not run the machine since no 3 Phase is available to me. I will either replace the motor or use a VFD.

EDIT: Machine has been restored (picture 6). I decided to use a TECO FM50-202c VFD to power the machine.
