So I guess this site is for master electricians only? Then what is the point of the forum if everyone on here knows everything? This part of electric work I'm not so sure on, hence why I'm asking.

Are you a licensed electrician? Are you insured as an electrician?

Ironically I do hah but that's besides the point. I do full remodels and am licensed and insured to do so. I'll reiterate, my knowledge is more based on residential , I consider this more industrial or commercial, that's why I'm asking.

You clearly miss the point.

NJ only has electrical contractors licenses, not Master or apprentice and clearly you don't possess one.

You clearly by your own admission are in over your head.

In the context of the on going conversation it doesn't take a genius to see I was referring to an Electrical Contractors license.

I know what NJ has , bc I have a electrical license and a HIC license, as well am fully insured.

Clearly these forums are for people to ask questions, if you all knew everything then you wouldn't need the forum. So instead of being argumentative either help with the question or move on.

I'm apart of plenty forums I know there at plenty of trolls with zero knowledge but like to chime in

Your story so far seems like it's full of holes.

Even a new electrician would just go buy a new motor in the proper voltage rather than go through the hassle you have so far with no job progress.

Seriously what are you talking a 1.5 hp exhaust fan motor?

It's a 2 hp, and I did consider that originally but they say keeping the 3 phase fan is best because if I went to a single phase i would get a higher HP motor. Which in turn would have to figure out the proper CFM I would need for the specific booth size

Your profile indicates you are not an electrician, so our members would be unable to answer your questions. I am truly sorry for the inconvenience.
