SRSG Newbie questions
I'm preparing to build a SRSG that can handle up to 2 - 2.5 KW:
What determines the diameter of the disk I should be spinning? I have seen
many in the range of 7" - 12" Which size is correct?
My next question is about motor HP. How much HP do I need? I have a 1/4HP
Reliance Cap start ball bearing motor. It is rated at 3440 rpm -at- 60Hz. If I
make it syncronous through amature modification I know I will lose some
torque, but is this a good choice for a motor? Or should I be looking for
something bigger? By the way the armature diameter is just about 2" if
that means anything.
I also have a split phase (no cap) , 1/2 HP bushing motor - is this a
better choice? Can split phase motors be modified the same way?
