I bought this motor as a drop in replacement for the single phase motor on my Grizzly 10x22 Lathe. I also installed a VFD to drive this motor with variable speed. I now have a really nice lathe setup. This motor runs smooth and quiet and bolts right onto my lathe without any modifications. My lathe is a Grizzly model G0602 which uses an IEC D80 1 HP motor. One small issue I had which was easily resolved; the motor made a squealing noise from the front bearing area. I thought it was the bearing but it turned out to be the dust seal. A small drop of oil fixed it. Don't let this dissuade you from this motor. Forget about buying junk motors on EBay for your Lathe or mill when you can get a new one for this low a price.
