Blount Lathe Question

C.W.Stivison
>My neighbor has an old blount lathe that he is willing to part with but of course it has a 5hp 3 phase motor and of course I don't have 3 phase power availble. Is there any resonable way to convert it to 220 single phase? (New motor, pulley system of some sort.) The price is reasonable if it dosen't cost to much to convert.
Thanks in advance.
