    I picked up five, NEMA 34 frame, BLDC servo motors and 4 drives today to add to my collection. All for FREE.:)

    115/230V single phase input drives. 750 watt motors. Pacific Scientific. Three of the drives are known good, and the other is easily repairable.

    I'm not sure what to do with them yet, maybe CNC my lathe? I really don't need another project right now. My DoAll surface grinder is the next CNC project, well, right after I finish the software for Alloy's Shizouka mill. Almost done with that.

    I should be starting on that one around the first of the year.

    :grin: That advantage I have there is that work with this stuff for a living so I have a lot of exposure. They are off of a router retrofit I did a while back. The customer called me and wanted to know if he could toss them. I told him I would be right over to to pick them up and properly dispose of them :grin:
