    What is the spindle HP? 15HP?
    If itís 15HP, youíll want a larger RPC than 20HP, say 25+ HP.

    His Hardinge HC almost certainly wonít work by hooking the output from a VFD as the input of the lathe.
    Hardinge electrical cabinets have all sorts of circuits that are not motors.

  21. Connecting single phase to a VFD designed for 3-phase input

    I would be surprised if it mattered which input legs you use since they are symmetrical. Itís all rectified to DC anyways

    #2 is a good point.
