    THIS.
    The older rotating phase converter scheme does NOT produce a clean 3-phase power source.
    More like two phases 180 degrees apart and a third between them by 90 degrees.

    We had to use solid carbide drills in some obnoxious grades of aluminum.
    But then we still switched to HSS reamers on high precision holes and just put up with the wear.

    I do not really see the purpose of solid carbide reamers.

    Carbide is at its best taking heavy cuts at higher speeds.

    Smoother cuts.

    And the closer you can get the power to true 3-phase the better.
    The motor converters do not produces 3-phase at 120 degrees each.

    This.
    Over and over.
