I agree 100% with Rick. I also have a VFD on my unisaw and would not go back to single phase. You can still use the original 3 phase starter that came with the lathe to control the VFD. The VFD I purchased was also from factorymation, 220V single phase input and 3ph output. The cost? $149….A lot cheaper than trying to find a single phase motor, switches and the labot to install it all.
