I picked up a 2hp Supermax Bridgeport clone a while back and bought a 3hp rotary phase converter. Never had a lick of trouble, and I've worked it hard on occasion... seems to do fine on the 3 phases with 90deg phase separation, instead of the true 120deg. May lose 10-15% torque...

This one's been re-wound to be self starting on single phase, it's just a bit noisy at idle, but quiets down under load.
