    Hi Tony,
    What sort of machine are you interested in? What is your budget? Are you interested in a kit, turn-key machine, or perhaps a used one?

    Are you using the VFD for a phase converter? In other words, does the saw have a 3 phase motor and you are wanting to run it from 240Vac single phase power? Otherwise, I'm not really sure why you...
