    Cool Bridgeport Romi EzPath Lathe / Rotary Phase Converter

    I just picked up one of these lathes dirt cheap, it is 240 3 phase power, I do not have 3 phase power where I live. Can you run this lathe off of a rotary phase converter or should I get a VFD drive, if so how big of a VFD will I need? Thanks Guys.

    Did you get your power situation worked out?
    Rotary phase convertor or VFD?
    I'm having trouble getting my EZ Path1 powered up and running on a rotary phase convertor.
    What year is yours?

    Thank you!
