Despite the good advice on VFD's I went with a 'Rotary Phase Converter' panel for the motor I already had ...I wired it all up last night and some tonight. I also moved the motor - it was in the 'impact area' for a lot of chips ... so I moved it between my lathe and surface grinder ... should stay cleaner.
