before i start randomly poking electrons where they shouldn't go, i
need some advice from the more experienced
electro-mechanical-woodworkers of the shopbuilt persuasion -
1. have *old*
220/240V 50/60Hz asko wash mach motor that worked before
2. have not had much luck esearching motor info online, (nameplate
info: Siemens 1BV5565-2BM 71130010/23 60/250W 220V 60Hz
12microFarads... has six leads on a molex kinda connector, 1 blue
(presume controller signal), 4 blk, and one grn/yel (presume
a pro/amateur/very experienced electrical practioner, but i
know which end of the wire to lick while standing barefoot in water...
4. want to know if motor is suitiable to be used to drive a shopbuilt
disc sander ? ? ? (want to make 12" dia disc; *seems*
like it should
be powerful and durable enough...)
5. ignorant question: want to know if can be hooked up as 120V, or
have to use 220/240V (which would probably make it an impractical
project at that point)...
thanks in advance for advice, warnings, and gratuitous carping diem...
