Nice job -- glad you got the VFD wiring worked out.

Is the second VFD for the feed motor?

yes the second VFD is for the feed motor, even at its fastest speed
its only 9.5 inches per minute,

and yup, the wood wedged in there near the motor, is keeping the tension on the belt,
the motor-plate is busted, near where the tensioner bolt sits,
so its only working on one hings,
,
need to find someone to weld it for me,

Wingnut...drop on over for coffee and I'd weld that up for you :D
Hey, I'm glad you stuck with the wiring. I'm a lektricle dummass and have asked for help here many times.
You shouldn't have problems with chips flying up into your VFD's like I had with my horizontal. I had no idea the ol' gurl would fling chips 4 feet in the air.
Had to build an alu box around the cutter side to keep the chips out of the VFD.
Good Job!
