Default invicta delta shaper helpppppp!

hi guys, i just got a 1988 delta shaper is a 7 1/2 hp 3ph im planing on setting it in my basement, well the quastion is how to wire it for 3 ph, i do not have 3 ph power, and if this shaper was a single ph is not a problem, i do not want to change the motor in the shaper, but i know that i can buy a power converter, does any one out there knows what exactley what i need to get and where to buy it, i found one on creag, li.t , in CT, but he will not ship it, a 3ph converter total of 30 hp for 300$ i think is a good deal. i live in chicago, so i had to let it go.and at my home i only have regular power help please, here is a pic attached of the shaper i got it for 1350 all delivered from california to illinois

Hi Ron

You can find them on Amazon but your are kicking a dead horse, it will take a big one for 7 1/2HP.. (power converter) ...but that's why you can buy 3 Phz. equipment so cheap..

Only just saw this. I was initially intrigued as I used to have an Invicta metal shaper. I was going to ask whether the motor was a star or delta one,as you can sometimes reconnect them.

Cheers

Peter
