    I was asking if you were joking about a cheap Harbor Freight grinder actually being 3 phase?

    Three phase motors will run in reverse buy switching 2 phases of a three phase motor.
    If you want to change the direction often I recommend purchasing a forward reversing starter witch will cost a couple of hundred dollars but will save you from having to swap wires back and forth every time you want to change the motor rotation.
    If it is single phase you are sool.

    Oh my gosh.


    I actually think that is illegal. You can't buy a $30 HF sander, a $5 water bottle, and a $4 belt and sell it for 1000% what you paid and claim it is your invention.

    So all you only have to put the sander on its back? That seems like an easy solution. Thanks.
    I had hoped that Hattorichop's suggestion might work, keeping the unit more stable.

    Sorry, Ryan. I didn't think of putting my sharpening question under knifemaking.

    I refute that assertion and as proof refer you to the aforementioned razrknife.com website. Have fun and no mods, this is not advertising. it is casting aspersions upon a con man and providing free entertainment for the members. I am not associated in any way with Mr. J. Lighting and furthermore am ashamed and disgusted that he lives in my fair state.
