Need Electrical ENG/TECH help (small transformer)
Here's the deal. I have a 220 VAC single phase lathe and just bought a 110 VAC digital readout (DRO). I don't want to run any more power (stupid me didn't run a neutral). I have a transformer out of a 5vdc 5A power supply. The transformer has 4 taps on the primary.
input is 1&4, for 105-125VAC jumper 1-3 and 2-4, for 210-250vac jumper 2-3.
Can I use this similar to a buck-bost transformer and put 220 vac to 1 & 4, jumper 2-3 and then get 110 vac out of 1 and 2-3?? Do I need to run a load on the secondary?? The DRO is 60W
On Topic - the lathe will be used to make suspension parts for the 460 powered cars. May cut a balancer spacer for hte short snout crank.
Faster cars, running tractors, and rain in TX - I can dream
