What is the FLA of the motor? Most likely, you can use something like this TECO (westinghouse) VFD – for about $200. Another option would be to go with a static phase converter, but you will reduce the horesepower a bit going that route. An RPC is overkill if you only have the one machine, and is kind of a PITA in that situation.

Cheers,
Brad
