I didn't realize that about the rotation. I need to upgrade my phase converter to power a big lathe I just aquired. I have a 5 hp converter but the lathe motor struggles to start with it (if it starts).
I'm just looking for something big and cheap. A larger than 10 hp motor would be fine or at least another 5 hp unit I could add onto my current converter.
