    Welcome to the forum.


    The only way to get 120/240v from a 240v delta transformer bank is with one center-tapped secondary to derive a neutral; you'd have 208v to neutral from the high leg.

    My suggestion in post #4 is a serious one. A window that doesn't open doesn't count as a window in this sense, placing the drop above the opening.

    It sounds reasonable for your situation. It certainly would be more efficient to do it at a workbench than in the field.

    Not for a constant-resistance load; the current varies with the voltage. A motor, on the other hand, tends to be a constant-power load, and the current would increase as the voltage lowers.

    No, you can't "unbend" the 120 degrees into 180 degrees that way. Since you need 120/240v with a neutral, you should use a 1ph 208-to-120/240v transformer, and bond the derived neutral.
