    Are you the guy who is rewiring them ZIG-ZAG and putting Capacitors in to make it think its a 3-phase input? I assume this is after you research the manufacturers wiring diagram to see if it is a simple link change to switch between 3 phase or 1 phase? I scored an awesome ESAB one time because the other guy didn't know you could rewire the unit internally!
