With the rotary type it is just that simple and as I mentioned you can make one out of a standard three phase motor.
Now you have given me a new "garage project" to try. There is a junk yard not to far from me that has lots of 3 phase motors that no one has use for and they sell them cheap because of the lack of demand.
I am curious how A & B phase shifting doesn't cause an issue on the line side.

Nice link, but I would have loved to have seen his response after he figured out that the service would still be over loaded LOL can't create energy out of thin air:rolleyes: Watts is watts no matter what the voltage is.

I did see a saw mill that use a 25 horse diesel to spin up a 100 horse 3 phase motor with a large flywheel on it, and it worked just fine because the flywheel took the load when cutting and the diesel just kept it spinning.
