Have a table saw powered by a three phase, 7hp, 24 amp motor. Problem is my local electric company does not offer three phase in my neighborhood. They would deliver service to my shop/garage for about $3,000. One alternative is a phase converter. Remanufactured delivered to my shop will run about $950 +/-; new about$1,350. Any cheaper thoughts? Can such a motor be rewired for traditional single phase, 220? Any other thoughts.
