Thanks!

Does anyone have any recommendations of manufacturers or retailers, or even who to avoid?

Is it a single phase VFD you are after or a 3 phase? Where are you in the world?
Reason I ask is I may have one to sell at a reasonable price, its a 4 or 5HP Mitsubishi that I used on my Bridgeport.

I'm in Rugby, near Coventry.  Its single phase to 3-phase I need, to drive the dual voltage 2.2Kw motor from a 16a 240v supply.

Ah ok think my VFD can only be connected to 3 phase.

I've only a 3-phase convertor for the lathe, not recommended for running proper 3-phase stuff.

Thanks anyway
