    G'day guys,
    i'm new and need some help .
    1.I brought a a electric sander with a brushless ac motor from the U.S it has a rating of 115V 60 Hz 10 amps.
    I'm told by other owners of this machine that it has burn out circuit boards.Why ?they don't know.pic of machine http://www.fatandys.com/literature/Boankemi/equipment/AdvantEdge.pdf

    2.my power supply here in Aus is 240V/50 Hz.

    I was going to buy a vfd to change the aust supply to the machine spec's
    the vfd i was thinking of is this http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Variable-Fre...nics?hash=item20ace0461a&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

    after writing this question it has occured to me that maybe the circuit board in the machine is type of vfd?
    Can someone please help me?
