Motor Info *LINK*

>Hello everyone. I'm trying to find a motor and and controller package that I can retrofit to an older delta lathe. I've been looking at a Freisen package off of eBay with the motor and controller matched with a 1 year warranty. Has anyone done business with these guys? Is there another supplier that offers both the motor and controller.

Unfortunately I'm a worse electrician than I am a woodturner which leaves me in fairly poor hands for making this decision. I think I'm looking for:

1 or 1.5 HP motor
single phase
110V (or possibly 220V)
Controller
0-3500 RPM
constant torque through the speeds

The link goes to some examples of what I've been looking at. Are these reasonable? Is there anything I'm missing?
