I need to build a rotary phase converter and need a 3 hp motor for an idler.

I'll buy the motor and also drive up to 100 miles to pick it up. I live South and East of Rockford Illinois.

Email me at jglass52@hotmail.com if you have a motor

You can get a brand new one, cheap.

I got a ten hp sitting under my gang box. It's a armload, I guesstimate about eighty pounds.

Heavy rascal.. Like mentioned.. you can get a cheap one local, call the motor shops. (probably as cheap as shipping)
Sometimes plants don't pick them up after rewinding.

I have paid $5 a hp locally for used ones.

As Dave suggests -- try a motor shop that rebuilds motors. Or a scrap yard.
