    What did you do in the shop today?

    Das, Olydemon, Aus, John - great looking pieces! Guess I need to get off my rear and finish some pieces.

    Now I see what you mean about a pain without a brake! Once you see the beam you realize how big the brackets are.

    Nice that the persistence paid off. I have a relative that has this Peter Wright sitting in the yard - I need to start begging.

    5 hp motor switch??

    I agree - after 25 years as an Electrical Engineer doing power distribution in buildings - I don't trust myself all the time either.... As I always tell everyone that asks for advise and is not comfortable working with electricity - call an Electrician - cheaper than a house fire.

    5 hp motor switch??

    A single phase 230 VAC, 5 HP draws 28 amps. 30 amps would work but be tight. I would opt for a 35 Amp switch. The other option mentioned is a starter - you will need a NEMA size 2 for the motor, pretty standard - just search the web. NEMA size 2 is designed to handle a motor up to 7.5 HP.
