: I'm looking at
: (Amazon.com product link shortened)
: This machine is described as having a "2HP, (230V 1 Phase input) 3 phase
: induction motor". Does that make any sense at all?
If you're considering this lathe, two recommendations:
a) consider others in its price range, especially the Nova DVR,
the Nova 3000 with a really nice motor, and the Jet 1442.
b) take a close look at the motor. Delta doesn't
use TEFC (totally enclosed, fan cooled) motors on some of its
products, and TEFC is preferred (no dust building up inside the motor).
