I have a 2 HP 3 phase motor, foot mount, 7/8" shaft, follow up here if
you are interested. It is in Illinois, USA. I would sell it for $30
USD plus actual shipping. For less, I would not mind just keeping it.
I found a local junk yard where I can buy any 3 phase motors for about
$4-5 per HP. I found them by looking into "scrap" category in yellow
pages (directory of businesses), and calling every number. Most were
not what I was looking for, but one was pretty good. His job is
demolition and scrapping of defunct factories, so he gets motors,
pumps, blowers, starters, contactors etc etc.
You may look into your business directory.
