Building The Three Phaser

Here is a plan for a very small single to three phase converter. The plan was published in a 1966 Popular Mechanics issue, The author claims it works and there was a retail kit available to build it. I have never built it, so I can't vouch for it, but it is the easiest and smallest converter I have ever seen. I have many more modern plans that are larger and much more complicated constructions.

The author claims it will run 1 to 3 hp, 3 phase, Y wound motors, off single phase mains. This is one I would like to try some time, just to see if it works.

Two Toy Electric Motors

So here are a couple of interesting projects for the novice home hobbyist. Both projects come from the "Junior Mechanics Handbook", which I have previously posted from.

The projects, two toy electric motors, are not ment to do practical work. They are interesting projects that teach and look great working as display units. Construction is not too difficult and will provide lots of enjoyment to the novice, learning electrical theory and  construction methods. Don't forget to expand to max. before saving, for best resolution.
