    Rewinding 3 Phase Motor

    Well Done. I am impressed.That may mean more from me than most because I was a Work Center Supervisor of a Motor Rewind shop in the US Navy. Served on CV-61 and CVS-67 which dates me. To RobB162 In general, I concur. However, while underway and a main fire pump dies, you can't just grab one from the store. (And some of our equipment was "One of a Kind" too)We had the following in our shop that helped:1. Burn Oven - Walk-in oven that you placed Stator in to burn the old varnish2.

Dip Tank - Tank of Varnish, large enough to submerge the finished stator. (Was a pain in the *** to keep the viscosity of the varnish correct.5. Overhead Trolly - to move the motor parts around (The ones we worked on could weigh in over a Ton)6. Bake Oven - When all done, nothing like a nice long bake to "Set" the varnish.7. Lots of E2-E5 (Nothing like lots of helping handsBut beyond those surface differences, we did things exactly the same. And yes, the hardest part was actually inserting the new coils without damaging them.[Wooden Push Sticks are a MUST!]
