I wired up my garage for 3 phase using a 5hp rotary phase converter. I had to put in a starter and a 3 phase panel. I run a manual mill, surface grinder and a CNC mill using the phase converter. The static converter can run only 1 machine. I have no problems running all my machines at one time. I did most of the wiring myself. I did have an electrican come in and twist the wires for the converter and the starter. The point is that you can run more things with the rotary converter and have a little more flexibility. I would first look in ebay or the clasified adds for a rotary long before I would go to single phase or static. You can also check with your local power company and see if they can run 3 phase to your house. good luck
