Brad – I think I get the VFD and what would be required to wire it up. If I understand you correctly and am interpreting the user manual correctly, it looks like I simply disconnect the existing wiring that currently connects the motor to the starter, and instead connect that wiring to the VFD. Since the VFD controls the motor, does it also now act like an “on/off” switch as well, such that I could mount the VFD on the front of the jointer in place of the current switch (see pic below)?

If so, I assume that I also simply eliminate the wiring that currently connects the starter to the existing “on/off” switch on the front of the machine? You can kind of see the two wires in the picture below (one connects the motor to the starter, and one connects the “on/off” switch to the starter).

If my interpretation is correct, then the only connection that I’m left with is between the motor and the VFD, which is then connected to my power supply (I would just plan to use a 12-gauge extension chord with the female end cut off and wired to the VFD, per your suggestion above). Sound about right?

Thanks again for your help!
