At Gulgong Pioneers Museum we converted a 10x15 Heidelberg Platen and
a V50 Miehle vertical to single phase, out here the converters are too
expensive and the cost was going to be around $au3,000 to conect the 3
phase, we bought a 2hp and a 3hp single phase motors for $au700 and
this works fine. Our 12x18 C&P and our 15x20 Wharfedale Hand fed stop
cylinder are run from one shaft (mounted on the floor) and run by a
single phase motor. Our Ludlow, C3 Intertype, Model 78 Linotype are
all run on single phase power. Arthur in Australia.
