>I am considering getting the Robust lathe, and was wondering about motors. I seem to remember reading that a 3 phase motor with a converter is better than a same hp single phase motor. Seems like there is supposed to be more power at lower speeds, and the 3 phase works better with the frequency drive. Anyone know for shure?????
