Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Isn't that bonded?

An Earthed neutral is a ground.

Isn't the neutral tied to ground at the transformer?

The neutral and the ground are essentially the same thing. Main difference is the ground isn't suppose to carry current unless there is a fault in the system, and the neutral is a current carrying conductor. They are bonded in the circuit breaker box.

There are exceptions, but it's in odd commercial supplies mostly

I presume as such. I didn't see any unique specs that prevent this VFD from being a good solution for my use. Hope I asked the correct questions...

No need for a neutral anyway. Two leads for 240v single in and three to motor.
Can't quite remember what ones the 3 wire control goes to.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


It's just a technicality I guess. Because the neutral is bonded to the ground wire which is Earthed. So essentially the neutral wire is Earthed. But that's not the way it should stated.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Got a new spray gun (not my hand. It's in my helpers hand) graco silver plus.......with a flat tip (old school not reversible tip).

Sweetmother of Mary! Dang near no overspray. Can get just inches away from the sidewalk. No drop cloth. Just use shield for the last couple of inches! Overspray is still possible if your technique is off. At the same time was using another machine with low pressure tip. Still lots of overspray.

A guy on YouTube is a cranky old dude......but tons of info on the art of painting. (Mike the painter) he hates reverse tips. Extension tubes and swivel heads (all tons of overspray) he was right.
