UPDATE: I called the friendly staff of POWERMATIC, and asked about my problem. They informed me that they still carry the 3HP 1Ph motor and switch box. All for about the same cost as the VFD.

  • Being that my saw was bought from an auction house, where I couldn’t verify the motor worked, the power supply in my garage can’t handle 3PH, I elected to purchase the motor directly from Powermatic, vs buying the VFD and then finding out that the old motor was bad, then having to buy another motor anyway. (kind of like when you change a tire, you’d rather put the correct fit back on vs a dinky little spare)
  • I will update this when I’ve installed the new motor.

I hope that this will help any future LJ’s if they run into this situation.
