Hello I just bought a grizzly G0602 10x22 lathe. I have it set up and changing spindle speeds is a real pain with the belt setup. I would like to replace the motor and make it variable speed. It comes with a 110v 1hp motor. I have 110v and 220v single faze in my garage. Ive searched this forum about different motors but theres so much information my brain started running out my ears. I would like to know what would be the best motor choice and why. A 3 phase motor and VFD, or a DC motor and SCR drive ? I need an RPM range from 150 to 2500. I do have a 2.6 HP @130v DC treadmill motor. What would be better to use for a spindle motor AC or DC and why? What about torque and HP drop off at lower RPMs? Thanks for any help or advice the more I search this forum on motor choices the more confused I get.
