    I would expect that if the load increased, the current would increase because it would take more power to meet the load. If your motor stays within the rated amperage you should be okay.

    No, below 60 Hz (for a 60 Hz motor) the motor will produce constant torque. Since HP is torque times RPM (times a factor), your motor will put out less HP but it will require less HP for the load...

    I would not try to go over 60 Hz. Going with a lower Hz will cause the motor to run slower and less air to be moved. Going over 60 Hz could easily lead to overheating of the motor.

    In a 60 Hz system, as in the United States, the maximum speed of a two pole induction motor is going to be somewhat less than 3600 RPM. The reason is that with 60 Hz (and two poles), the field is...

    That's a really old technology and it gives an inferior picture. It was decent in it's day but I junked mine quite a few years ago.

    Seems to me that it would work. Give it a try and let us know how it come out. Just be very careful the first time you try it - maybe make a lesser cut and work up to what you really want to do.

    Motors are not 100% efficient. Although a HP is about 750 watts, the motor will draw more than 750 watts because of heat losses and mechanical resistance. Depending on the motor, a 1 HP motor could...

    That "arrow" or "dart" banding - did you make that yourself? I assume you would make it by cutting the wood on the bias (about 45 degrees) and putting two pieces together. Is that correct?

    Yes, I do that with much thinner stock. I've never had one kick back on me (but I don't stand in the line of fire just to be sure :)).
