    RF-45 single phase motor

    I have a Rong Fu RF-45 (not a clone, an actual Rong Fu) that I purchased a few years ago and am just now getting setup in my garage. I realized my RF-45 has a 3 phase motor and being in a residential zone I only have single phase power so I either need to buy a phase converter or source a new motor.

    Anybody have a single phase motor for sale that is compatible with this machine? I'm also happy to trade since I (probably) have no use for this 3 phase motor.


    Or, if anybody has a single phase version of this machine and know the motor model number or dimensions (frame size and spindle diameter), that would also be helpful!

    If the motor can be configured for 230v then you can use a 1ph in - 3ph out VFD.
