you are, and I'll come over and haul it to the junk yard before you sink
too much money into a worthless machine. :-)
Actually, you can either:
1. Replace the motor with a single phase unit - probably 2hp - about
2. Purchase a variable frequency drive matched to the 3ph motor rating
(about $250). Advantage, you can get variable speed.
3. Puchase or build a 3phase converter. Converter kits go on eBay for
$60 or so, and full fledged units can be purchased for $100-300,
depending on HP and type of converter.
Good luck on the machine. Any idea of the vintage?
