Owner came by to further inspect. I need to build a separate "closet", lik e an enclosed area of a central heating/cooling unit. He said the convert er motor will be pulling lots of air, needs lots of ventilation WITH NO DUS T, emphasis on wanting as little dust, as possible, to enter the converter motor.
The shop is on pillars, so I'll have the converter off the slab and vented under the shop, with blocked opening to prevent critters from entering. S eems easy enough, build a simple box/closet.
Hope to get it done this week, ready for wiring next week.
Jointer had little table surface rust. Internals had little debris. It's cleaning up nicely. All the gears, mechanics, etc. seem to be operating f ine.
Once the wiring is complete, I'll turn it on without the blades installed, just in case something is not right.
