Converting AC to DC Answered
I have a single phase 3.5 hp AC motor,
I would like to convert to a 12 volt DC.
I'm no electrical expert but I think it can be done.
From watching youtube vids and asking Mr. Google
I understand a DC motor runs slower say 1750 rpm,
where my AC motor spins at 3,450 rpm.
I also understand a DC motor has brushes.
Besides the speed being different, and changing the cord out,
is there any reason WHY this couldn't be done?
Any potential drawbacks?
Any help or knowledgeable advice would be much appreciated.
