    Very nicely done. I found it interesting that you can change a motor from star to delta. What other tools are running off vfds. You need to get a lathe.;D Is the coolant just running off a plug point.

    Maybe I misunderstood this one. So its R780 to buy but it mentions R770 for standerd shipping. So they are not showing a true price then.
