Topic tags/keywords: 3 phase motor converter tablesaw chain mortiser butchers saw question

Hello to all. This is my first time posting a question anywhere much less here.

I am trying to run 3 different machines off of one 3 phase rotary phase converter, with only one machine running at a time. I got the converter to run a 5hp powermatic table saw. I have since added two machines. Here is the 3 phase motor.

I am trying to run a powermatic chain mortiser with this motor plate info though I have not done so yet

and a butchers saw with this motor plate, which I do run without any issues. info

Does anyone see problems here? Thanks to all, and it is good to be here.

Assuming I understand you correctly and the top picture is the phase converter at 7.5hp you should have no trouble running the 2how motor in the middle picture.
