Garage Workshop – BBQ Smoker Build with American Rotary Phase Converters

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.

  1. Finally got around to installing my 5 HP AR5 rotary phase converter and it works great! The converter was easy to hook up, as advertised, and it’s very quiet when running. It runs my Hardinge lathe with the two speed motor perfectly, and a huge old 3 phase drill press. Just wish I’d noticed the packet you shipped that was attached to the front panel switch before I went to the hardware bin – there were the nuts and bolts I needed for wiring up the idler!

    Thanks for making a high quality and useful product.

  2. Had my 15 hp converter for about 6 years now and not one issue, I run a HAAS tl1 lathe, Bridgeport mill, and a surface grinder with it and not one problem. Might need to step up though.

  3. I have a 5 hp 3 phase compressor I want to hook up. I also would then get a 3 phase welder and down the road hopefully a mill and a lathe. what would I have to consider for size wise in a phase converter?
