      There are some solid benefits from this change.
      Using a Variable Frequency Drive, the input to the VFD can be household 220 single phase, and the VFD gives 3 phase power to the motor.  I did this to my South Bend lathe, and can easily control the speed with a knob.  I run the middle belt position, and rarely need to move it.  It works great if you have a long facing cut, you can start outside diameter slower, and use the dial to the RPM up as the tool feeds toward the center of the face off cut.  Another great benefit is the VFD can provide braking to the chuck.  The chuck on my old South Bend stops in a few seconds, which saves work time.

      I like to ask you for what reson are you converting to 3 phase?  Must have missed your previos threads. I seams single phase would be the way to go for a home shop. All of my machinines are single 110v and 220v that includes a 16"

      Thanks for the help Corey. I added a switch to one of the 240 hot wires and ran the other through the drum switch. now I have forward and reverse. I do plan on switching to a 3 phase motor and converter sometime in the future when I get the extra cash.

      Thanks again,
