Just get a VFD (~$150) and run it with the existing 3-phase motor. You will get tons of benefits that you can’t any other way, and you can get rid of the existing motor starter and sell it to recover most if not all of the price.

I second the VFD by far the easiest, cheapest solution.
3 phase runs smoother and more power.

Have your say...
