I'm new to this group. So...I got a 10EE and it has no motor but a controller mounted that I think is some sort of DC drive. Anyways I want to put in the Ac 5hp motor and VFD and I have some questions...
1. my top pulley is 5.5" in diameter and the RPM dial says 4000 so what RPM motor do I need? Will the VFD run it faster than the motor data plate?

2. Mine has that electric feed reversal thingie and not sure if I want to keep that but if I did how would I wire that in?

3. What are the hooks for above the hatch cover (by your feet)?

Thanks!
Ben
ps. I have access to all sorts of machinery....shear, laser, milling, turning, tig/mig pipe bending

That's where you store the "knock out bar", used to knock Jarno taper tooling, like a dead center, out of the spindle.
Makes perfect sense now! I hear you are the SME on the 10EE! Glad to meet you...
