Don't think so--I expanded the image w/ the cord up as far as browser
would go and it looks like standard 3-prong plug to me...plus it's just
got a mechanical on-off switch; no starter which would be expected fur
shure w/ 3P. Still never hurts to make sure what motor actually is in it...
I wouldn't rely on this rule of thumb... the middle school near me, built in
the late 1960s, has 3 phase and runs even 6" jointers on it. I also noticed
a local Craigs List posting for a new 1/3 HP 3 phase motor... I got the
impression it was for a blower.
Agreed. However, the seller should be able to copy the information from the motor's
electrical rating plate and email that to Bill; whether it's single-phase or 3-phase should be
Bill, let me know if you want to borrow my truck -- but I think you might want to rent one that
has a lift gate.
Looks exactly like the one we had in our high school shop, which IIRC,
was not 3 phase. Why do I remember: my occasionally less than stellar
behavior got me extra duty on machine maintenance chores.
My personal opinion is that it's about $200 too high, but value is in
the eye of the user.
In either case it would be a great restoration project for one
interested in doing so, therefore its value is proportionate to its
usefulness to the woodworker who uses it, and that may be priceless. ;)
The plug from what I could tell looks like 110V three prong to me altho
it isn't conclusive as the picture angle is from the plug prong end but
sorta' a side view; possibly it is dual-voltage so could convert to 240V.
Ewww...just went to recheck my conclusion and "posting has been deleted
by author"...looks like deadhorse country here now...
"Enough"? No chance. Despite their three-day alarms of flood warnings
and promises of 2" or more, we got only about a half-inch in a tiny
little shower of <0.1" in the morning yesterday then the rest from "the
big show" this AM between 4:30 and about 7. Like every other similar
event the last several years, it rained nicely for a little while but
nothing more than drizzle for over about 20-30 minutes. Just can't get
the main areas to come our way.
If you see this in time (it'll reset at midnight to the new day) look at
the radar precipitation total estimated map. We're right in that gray
"donut hole" w/ green, yellow, orange around. Been that way all year --
2" and as much as 4 or 5" within 10-15 miles but not on us.
Just looked, my weather station has accumulated 5.28" YTD; add about
another inch maybe for some snow in March. We should have had 13-14" by
now or perhaps even more on our way to our average of roughly 18".
The radar map has reset by now of course and I don't know of any way to
retrieve an archive view...
The one added note is that there is at least one difference this year
from the previous two severe drought years is that at least this year
there is rain around the area whereas two years ago there wasn't much
all the way to almost the Mississippi east. Last year it finally began
some Wichita and east. This year it's at least been in the area so
maybe we're finally beginning to see a change in the cycle. Last year
was driest we've had here at the farm in the 100-yr including the
Dirty-30s of <7". Year before was about 2nd or 3rd, exceeded only by one
of the 30s and one in the 50s. At this pace we're on track locally for
nearly matching those even though all around there's been quite a lot
since second week in June altho whole area was in "Exceptional" Cat IV
on the drought monitor ratings. The problem with them is that they
start over on Jan 1 so don't really reflect the long-term situation well.
So're we... :(
Out of the 5.28", 3.03" was June and 1.53" July or all but a little over
1" (2" counting the March snow) for the first 6 months of the year.
April and May which should be our two wettest months were 0.33" and
0.65", respectively. We've not had a decent thunderstorm, our normal
primary mode of rainfall, in 3+ years now. No tornadoes or hail which
is good, but no rain of any significance to go along with that that is
the redeeming feature of the severe weather season for the southern High
Yeah, there are areas worse off than even we, fur shure...
But, just out of curiosity, what's your annual average?
We were out to Red River/Eagle Nest two weeks ago and excepting for just
a couple small areas just east of Springer, it's lush until almost
Clayton and from the cutoff north of Springer to Cimarron is about as
green as I've ever seen it in late July...
