If I do switch to a single phase motor do I loose the variable speed. The one thing I don’t want to do. The original motor was set up with a mickey mouse switch which came in contact with the variable speed lever. It was attached with a couple small self taping screws to the inside housing. I think the shop teacher ( the machine came from a high school in R.I.) to keep the machine running. The company who checked the motor said it runs but appears to have some kind of burning issue inside. They reccommended I buy a used single phase 1 hp 230 volt. The rpms are important as well as the size of the motor itself, along with its mounting abilities. I do not want to loose the vaiable speed, and will not. Thanks Restored.
