This is my first post so I want to start by saying thanks for all the great tips I have found here. This is a great place to learn.

Now, I need some help with a stroke sander. I have a 3-phase Minimax L55 that I want to convert to 1-phase. I know it will need different motors and electronics and I was hoping someone here might have a 1-phase model and they could send me photos of their components. I previously had a 1-phase but it was lost in a fire and I can’t find any details on the electronics.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Wolf, it might be easier to use an inverter, but I have no knowledge of such things other than to know they exist. FWIW

There are some inverter gurus here on LJs that will chime in soon I’m sure. Consider the pains of swapping out the switch equipment and dealing with the pains of matching the European motor mounts (here in the US anyway).

Thanks for the info on the inverters. I did look into them, but most seem to be 3ph to 1ph and don’t work well with needing to reverse the direction on the motor. Of course, I might be wrong. I would be happy to hear about one that would work.

Wolf, the one I mentioned is 1 phase input and 3 phase output. Kinda, sorta seems like it might work for you.
