Chris's Tips


In my opinion 1.5HP is the best option for most beginners. The big pro to this option in my opinion is the ability to plug the VFD for a 1.5HP motor directly into a 110V outlet. This makes placing your grinder anywhere you want to put it easier and the ability to relocate without calling an electrician for a 220V drop. 2hp motors require more current therefore a 220V electrical drop.






Motor - 2 HP - 3 Phase, Variable Speed (230v)



The first step is to determine the type of outlet you are using. We will wire the VFD & Motor to accommodate your electrical connects.

Send us an email with a photo of your outlet.

Example: NEMA 6-20P, 20 Amp, 230v Straight Blade Plug/Outlet




Motor - 2 HP - 3 Phase, Variable Speed (230v)

IF you really like to remove metal, this is the better option. Not all knife makers are "heavy" handed enough to benefit from a 2hp motor. I have been making knives about 10 years and just this year have decided I am ready to step up to 2HP.
