Okay, so I have a chance to purchase some new old stock slightly weathered electric motors on ebay for very cheap and close by my work. They are 5 hp 3 phase but wired for 360-400 volts.
I have a 10 hp rotary phase converter but only have 220v.
My question is... Can the 380v motor be rewired to run on 220v? It is a 60hz and my converter is 60hz. I have been reading for 3 hours and some indicate yes; others no. I would be inclined to buy just to learn more about it, but with electricity... I try not to "play" with anything more than 110volt.
The auction ends tomorrow.
