DC motor control for variable speed lathe

>Wondering what is required to hook up a DC motor for variable speed operation on a mini lathe...

I was thinking of a Vicmarc VL100, then adding a DC motor off ebay and whatever control unit is required.

What do people use to get variable DC supplies from 110v or 220v? I think 1/2 to 3/4 hp would be sufficient.

Thanks!
