I scored this today, apparently "B" is for BIG lol. Made in Syracuse, NY, we had to disassemble to lift it. 3 phase Master Electric motor, don't know the HP the motor plate is missing but it starts on my 5hp RPC. With 5 new belts $300.

Dang, she's a beast! But i've seen what a belt grinder can add to a fab process. Score for you, too- i don't think you can get a 3 phase motor with controller for anything near $300.

I've seen some guys park a bucket of water underneath, as spark suppression.

Nice!

Wish I could find a deal like that. I'm sure you will use that for everything under the sun.
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything.

I had just spent $290 on a brand new Kalamazoo 1x42 belt sander...what an utterly useless pile of junk it is, hence I jumped on this Porter Cable. Oh that giant motor...its only 1hp lol.
