People talking nonsense is common. Also people often misunderstand things.Over the years, when purchasing dryers, we were always told that 3 phase was a little less expensive to run by folks who knew a lot more than we did
Whenever possible single phase is preferable (less complexity), but here is a basic idea of how things work.our ancient Cincinnati Demon (35 years old, all infrared) uses 3 phase for the heat, but taps a single leg to run the belt.
People talking crap is quite common, I agree. The people we've worked have all been pros though, with one them being the head maintenance person for Avery Dennison, you may have heard of them. What he didn't know, he knew where to find out, a great source, so you can see why I found him credible. Either way, thanks for the conversation. I'm just now, at the ripe age of 69, studying electronics so I can dabble in my guitar amps after I retire, and yes, I'm very aware of the deadly dangers inside an amp's electrolytic capacitors.

a) The electricity grid is 3-phase.
b) You can use all 3-phases (400v) with 4 wires, or just one of the three phases (220v each) which is just 2 wires.
The US system is a bit unusual because each phase is split in 2 parts locally, resulting in 3 wires and the 220v/110v options.
Note: In all cases there is also an additional ground wire
I wouldn't pay more than $200 and maybe another $100 for parts.I'm not sure if you can answer this but what do you think would be a good price to have the electrician rewire the heat press. I mean what do you think i should be expecting to pay to have this done.
I wouldn't be surprised... but that would be an agency price.My wife thinking its going to be over $2000.
