JJ now Lehaut has mentioned three phase, it reminded me, when we were buying this house, due to all the three phase stuff OH had for his woodworking, I tried to get three phase supplied.
Did any of the electricity providers even know what it was....... not on your nelly. And frankly for home use, I doubt it is ever asked for.
I ended up, what with being tenacious, talking to someone who did know what it was, but in a panic that we might want it.
In the end we bought a three phase converter, was not cheap, but heyho, cheaper than selling everything and buying again.
