Dec 5 - start work on the VFD

Move small VFDs into the garage for storage.

Check the various mounting bolts on the 300 HP- 1/2 inch, 3/8 and 5/16. Nothing like consistency.

I'll need to remove the lexan cover that keeps errant fingers out of the high voltage electronics before all of bolts are accessible. I might have to remove a couple of jumper cables within the cabinet as well. The capacitors are mounted in the base, partially buried in the cooling cabinet. There is also a 'DC Bus Reactor'. This is going to be interesting.

The VFD is still outside and there is not much daylight after I get home from work.

I should get some pictures posted.
