For Sale: Brook Crompton 8 pole 3 phase ¾ HP Imperial motor

Tue 24th Sep '19

Advert ID: 36272

This comes from a Smart & Brown Model L plain second operation lathe, that was one of a small battery of similar machines at the Epping Forest Horological Centre. I obtained the lathe direct from the Centre about two years ago now, but have only recently gotten a round tuit to recommissioning it. As far as I am aware the motor was working when the lathe was despatched, but for various reasons have never tested it myself.

The motor came set up with a Mitsubishi inverter, control pendant and was configured to run off a 220V single-phase domestic supply input. It can be wired as either star - high speed 1440 rpm - or delta - low speed 720 rpm (I think that's right...).

From the outside, it looks clean – even the original plastic oil nipple caps are still present – lacking the usual grot of ages that one often finds on these things when you pull them out blinking into the cold, clear, light of day. No noises when the shaft is spun by hand.

Having got the motor out of the cabinet, I now realise that it is going to be too heavy for me to get it back in on my own, and as I already seem to have acquired a double hernia from somewhere else, I don’t fancy pushing my luck with this. I got as far as identifying the low speed delta wires, but now feel that I’d be better off fitting a modern 6 pole ½ hp aluminium body motor instead, so that’s the route I am now pursuing.

The data on the motor plate so far as I can make out is -

Volts 380-420
Phase 3
UK 50 Hz frequency
FL (full load?) Amps 1.3 (– at 1420 rpm?), 1.75 (- at 710 rpm?)
FL speed 1420, 710
HP 0.75
Rating CMP
H. (not sure what this is?) 3C

Frame size is Imperial C184, foot mount, 1-1/8” dia shaft, 3 inch long with keyway.

It is on a sack barrow ready to go, and if push comes to shove we can slip it into a tractor bucket and slide it off that into car boot or van rear.
Price: £40.00
Collection Only
