    The treadmill motor is not TEFC. My e-mail and phone # is in my signature here. Wayne

    For a brushless motor you do not want to use a rheostat . It sounds like you do not have very much knowledge about motor so you might want to call me and I will try to walk you through it. Wayne

    1.5 hp or 2 hp. 3 phase if you are using a VFD. VFD should have a NEMA 4X enclosure and the motor should be TEFC. Let me know if I can help you. Wayne

    Paul, if you follow the instructions on the DVD and make sure everything is square, especially the motor to the frame you should have no problems.

    Check out the Build Moe's Grinder on the DVDs page and the Grinders page at www.WayneCoeArtistBlacksmith.com. You can probably build the frame out of your scrap pile. Let me know if I can help you. Wayne

    Castable refractory

    That is Refractory Cement, intended for sticking bricks together, it is not Castable Refractory. Refractory is for building fireplaces. You need a Castable Refractory, such as Kast-0-Lite. See the products on the Forge Supplies page at www.WayneCoeArtistBlacksmith.com. Let me know if I can help you. Wayne

    Refractory suggestions

    For a coal forge go to a farm tractor repair place and see if they have any old stump jumpers. That is the part of a rotary mower (Bush Hog) that holds the blades. Cut out the crossmember and bolt three 3/4" floor flanges one at 12:00, one at 166 degrees from that (about 4:00) and one at 166 degrees from that or from 12:00 on the other side (about 7:00 or 8:00) 3 equally spaced legs. Cut a hole in the center to accept a fire box. Salt Fork Blacksmiths in Oklahoma and SOFA in Ohio sell cast iron fire boxes, and David Custer of Firey Furnace on Face Book sells welded fire boxes. You can also do a Google search for Fire Box Blacksmith and get lots of suggestions. If you need help locating any of these sources e-mail me. I don't think that you are going to be very happy with what you have started with. It is way to deep and not a good shape. If you will put your location in your profile it might help others help you.

    Refractory suggestions

    Or just go out back and dig up some clay from your yard. That is what the old time smiths did. Let me know if I can help you. Wayne

    belt grinder motors and vfd uk advice required

    Check out the motors and VFDs on www.WayneCoeArtistBlacksmith.com. I looked into the cheaper VFDs when I first started. I planned to put it in a box, with filters. I quickly found it best and cheaper to just buy the right VFD to begin with. You really need a NEMA 4X enclosure. The KB VFDs have a potentiometer built in. Let me know if I can help you. Wayne

    Thought fer the day, / add yours if you like

    I have to disagree with that . Better save money for stuff you will need than have a bunch of unused tools and empty pockets Not if running to the store for that part when the trip is 30 miles!

    Josh, I don't know how many times I have told someone something close to that about building a forge.
