    My guess is it has the windings in it be ran a variety of ways, 110v, 220v clockwise, counter clockwise

    Depending on what you want you change where the wires on the plug go and your set
    (At least I seem to remember Dayton electric motors being like that)

      They must have a small inverter to convert from single phase to 3 phase. It would be good for speed control and soft starting then.

      I didn't read up when I ok'd Tek's posts but I don't think they use 400 volt/3 phase

      It does say "Made In China". So anything's possible.

        The photo of the motor shows 120v 3 phase which is not a common voltage out of a transformer but could be had from and inverter. That overseas electronic crap is so cheap now, it's amazing what is being done.

          what HP is this 3 phase motor (1/3HP?) If I can speed control it with the washers electronics, maybe it would be a good shop motor.

          You would either adapt the washer electronics to do what you wanted them to do or come up with another inverter drive. I doubt the electronics are adaptable. But maybe!
