Lathe Motor/Controller

>My turning club has decided to rebuild the club lathe stand and replace the single speed motor with an electronically varible speed system. We are looking at a 1-1/2 or 2hp, 110VAC, 3-phase motor and a controller which will have 110VAC, single phase input and 110VAC, VFD output. Looking for suggestions on where to cost effectively obtain these and any experiences that you may have had in putting together such a system?
