PERFECT NO FAIL way to do it & the price would be right also. With a little handy wiring, he could also have remote start/stop & speed control located at each machine. VFD's don't like start/stop, fwd/rev controls on output. All controls need to be in the VFD drive unit.Wire a female plug to the VFD and then plug in the machine that you want to use.....
After giving this more thought. After its all said and done, you will likely spend over 1/2, if not over the full cost of a second VFD. Consider just buying 2 of the same VFD's. Makes all this mute, and tons easier to wire it all up. Plus, you have a second that can be switched between machines if one goes bad.I never use both at the same time so why bother buying another VFD. What type of switch could I used to switch the 3 wires from the lathe to the mill?
