can anyone tell is there a way of using 3 phase tools on a single phase installation, i know you could maybe link out the phases across a single phase but i know this is not advisable is there any safe method of achieving this is it expensive , also i presume it depends on wat type of tools are being used wat loads they have and weather they contain motors, any advice would be great thnaks guys
I did find a thing recently about doing this on an american site, but don't have the link. you may have to spend a bit of time googling to find it. depending on the type of tools it can be technically possible, but not easy and not cheap.
you could buy a 'phase convertor' sold for the purpose but again are quite expensive, rated for highest tool load needed, sold on web or through 'INDUSTRIAL EXCHANGE & MART'.
most are electronic, some are a rotary convertor ie a motor 1Ph driving a 3Ph generator,
