3 Phase Motor / controller

>I upgraded my Nova 3K to 2hp VS AC with a controller. This works great and I'm not having any problems. But, is it possible to run two different motors using the same controller?

Laquna has a nice looking 2HP 20" disc sander for $795 as compared to Powermatic at $2000 and Woodtec at $1400. The problem is the Laguna is 3 phase. This got me to thinking about the possibility of using the same controller to handle both machines. I can't think of anytime when I would want to run them at the same time.
