    What cord grip to secure a cord to this motor?

    No fan, I am assuming that TE is equivalent to TENV (Totally Enclosed Non Ventilated), but that might not be true. There is another spec without a fan that you reference being TE air over. A fan isn't very useful running low RPM off a VFD anyways. A drill press is pretty light duty cycle. If it...

    What cord grip to secure a cord to this motor?

    The whole size is right on for a drilled out 1/2" NPT. It was new old stock off ebay, still in a Baldor box if I remember correctly and had a filler plug with paint on it in the hole. I guess some manufacture ordered it this way. I can't find a reference to the spec #. I will try out the grip...

    What cord grip to secure a cord to this motor?

    Thanks, I think this one has a chance of working. On the similar plastic ones I have, the threaded length is just short of .400" and I don't get any thread engagement on the inside nut.

    What cord grip to secure a cord to this motor?

    I have a Baldor totally enclosed, 1hp, 3ph 1200rpm motor I am installing as a replacement on drill press. There is no attached wiring box and instead, the wiring space is in the back of the motor as it does not have a fan. I am using 14/4 SJOOW cord (short run from a VFD). The wire "knockout" is...

    OT: How to find hot-shot truckers?

    https://www.shiply.com/ This is another provider similar to Uship. I haven't used them as their prices have always been higher, but I did get a lot of quotes.

    OT: How to find hot-shot truckers?

    Is this using the houshold item or other category on uship? You might try an additional listing under the heavy equipment category if you item can be put on an open trailer. That might be more likely to get a bid a hot-shot with space. You might just have a tough location...

    OT: How to find hot-shot truckers?

    I have also found Navis to always be VERY expensive ($500 to fetch an 20lb item 10 miles away and box). I have had very good luck with independent custom crating companies that will go fetch and crate items so they are suitable for LTL. I had a small company in Santa Rosa, CA pick up 4 hand...

    OT: How to find hot-shot truckers?

    For Uship, from the new shipment tab try selecting "Houshold item" or "Other" if you want Vans or enclosed trailers. Heavy equipment or vehicles will get you hot shot guys. I've had pretty good luck using this for 5 shipments in the 150-400lbs range and 2-5 hours aways.

    NPT threads generating shavings and flakes during use

    I have had good luck removing burrs like that from threads using a compliant non woven abrasive wheel like these: https://us.pferd.com/en/polinox-mounted-grinding-wheels-pnr I would also look into if it is an option to switch to a face seal based assembly. If your flow and pressure requirements...

    Buy it now or pass? Commercial compressor

    Screw compressors really need to size matched to the air consumption. They don't last well in cycling mode as the oil never gets hot enough an end up accumulating moisture. Lot's of stories of screw compressor failures for this reason. I recommend looking for a used oilless scroll compressor...

    HAAS 6" CNC Vise

    I did end up buying a pair of these and they have been good enough for what I do, which is relatively limited prototyping. Haas does continue to be a good source for randomly well discounted tooling. I actually just got a catalog with a $100 coupon in it.
