The only way to convert this saw is to use an inverter. With a blade that size I'd also suggest fitting a DC injection brake (about £125+VAT for the module) or a "home" position guard/chip catcher and automatic return mechanism which will return the carraige to a safe non-working position as soon as you release the handle. As your going up to Clitheroe why not drop in at Calderbrook Woodworking Machinery in Bacup or VWM at Trawden near Colne? Either of them can supply a return device. This isn't me being a nanny, either. A blade that size will continue spinning for quite some minutes after the motor has been powered down and if you forget it's still spinning and stick something in the blade by accident (piece of timber pushed down a bench for example) it can sometimes cost more than a change of underwear..... :shock:omega1":abw02hqt said:Only one problem though, I don't have 3-phase supply at my house. I guess I'm gonna have to but a converter or inverter unless any body knows a way around this?
