    If my memory serves, 2.5amps at 220 3 phase is around 1HP. That’s right at the max for a 110v single phase input for a VFD but still doable. I tend to over-rate my VFDs a bit, but it might be worth...

    After you get the shaft back from the company who is straightening it for you, I’d be curious to know if they did it cold or flame straightened it.

    The recommendation of an electrician was an attempt to have you keep all the bells and whistles. That box looks professionally wired and it shouldn’t take them long to convert it.

    11G mild steel SMAW/MMA should be no problem. 14g is a little harder with a buzz-box but still very doable. I would second Clive's suggestion to get a modern inverter. If you're worried about the...

    I would vote no.
    1) The idealarc line is a beast and it's rated for some serious amperage. If you actually needed that level of amperage, then you would most likely have 3 phase power already. ...

    I was wondering the same thing. I haven't heard of an original Rivett turret attachment for the 1020 or 1030 lathes, but we all know about their documentation.

    Fuses: those are 30A fuses and would imply 220v power since 30A is way to much for that lathe at 440v.
