Well... if I don't accidentally remove arms or legs with it, I plan to use a more normal-size motor and make a workshop fan out of it to sell to someone who can use it. What voltage motor is on it? Couldn't you just put a variac on it to slow it down and that way who ever has it could still kick it up to super high for fun!
It was in danger of being scrapped and I hardly paid anything for it so I had nothing to lose.
Hi Don. It didn't have a motor. That motor is a 2HP 3-phase 480V motor running on a Allen-Bradley VFD. It's a test motor I use for various things. I was running the motor at about 3000 RPM, with the belt ratio the fan was probably running 1500 RPM or so.
