I bought a 3phase, 2HP baldor motor along with a variable frequency drive to power it off of household 220 current. My plan was to retrofit my Jet 1442VS lathe with it, but I ended up getting a bigger lathe. I’d sell it as a pair for $300 plus shipping (about what I paid for them). Both are brand new. The motor has a long shaft on it (something like 10”) and was custom built for something, but never used.

If you’re interested, I’ll get the specs and photos together.
