Not long ago, we had the pleasure to visit with the one and only Jimmy DiResta. Jimmy is a designer, builder, maker, educator, and all-around inspiration to many.
In the first two videos below, DiResta offers insight into how he got started in his career. In the third video below, he offers up his advice on how to create an effective YouTube channel. And finally, in videos 4 and 5 below, he gives you a tour of his shop and farm.

As the second of our many stops on our trip to Colorado, we visited with Owner and Designer, Peter Olivetti, of the Olivetti Bicycle Company.
Peter operates his business out of his home workshop in the mountains of Boulder where three-phase power is cost-prohibitive to obtain. In addition, he needs to be able to deliver the custom precision and quality his bikes are known for.
Whether you’re a small home workshop or large production, Olivetti Bike Co. is sure to offer some inspiration!

American Rotary phase converters are perfectly suited for precision metalworking equipment such as wire EDM’s, CNC lathes, CNC mills, and other voltage-sensitive applications. General Metal Fabrication equipment such as grinders, welders, shears, brakes, and benders are often run on American Rotary phase converters. Visit our metalworking applications page to learn more today.
In the first of our three stops in Colorado earlier this year, we visited with Mountain Heart Woodworks. You name it and this family-owned business does it – from running a full operational sawmill, millwork, shiplap, tongue and groove, custom tabletops, finished mantles, and even supplying a large amount of lumber to the surrounding area.
For a long time, their business operated off of gas motors. However, as their business grew it didn’t take long before they realized they needed to find a more efficient way to keep up with demand. They now run their entire business off of 2 American Rotary AI Industrial phase converters running multiple motors all day, every day. Watch the videos below for their full story.

American Rotary supplies phase converters for every facet of the woodworking industry! While a single phase converter can be used to operate a single piece of machinery, woodworkers often need to start and run multiple 3-phase machines (sometimes simultaneously), which also have varying load conditions. The balanced output of American Rotary phase converters allows for the safe operation of very small, lightly loaded 3-phase machinery on the same rotary 3-phase converter as larger, hard-starting equipment. To learn more, visit our Woodworking applications page.
Last month we were doing some work in Tennessee when we decided to drop in to this home workshop to see what was cooking! This video contains a lot of great information for those new to the idea of using a phase converter.
If you have a garage workshop you can probably imagine the possibilities of what you can use a phase converter for to save you both time and money. For more information about what phase converter is best for your needs, click here.
