As far as the VFD choice, I'm currently working on a couple grinder projects. One of them uses a 2hp Leeson TEFC 3450RPM motor with a KBAC 27D controller that will run on 220 to power my new horizontal grinder. That combo recommendation came directly from Brian Fellhoelter. Last time I checked, Brian knew what he was talkin' about!
J, if that motor and controller works for Brian it will certainly work fine for whatever you and I have to throw at it!
