Short story, I picked up a very neat little 3phase 110v electric motor. The motor is from WWII and came in an amazingly well packaged bag inside what can only be described as a bullet proof box.
I was thinking I could use this to power an electric sander system for sharpening knives. But I am a bit leery about how to hook electricity to this compact motor. I have included some pictures of the scary parts. Please feel to point fingers, make fun of me and get me banned for my stupidity.
I have looked up how to hook the motor up online, but the ways I have seen I am not 100% sold on. anyway, Behold Pictures!
