Does anybody have any experience putting a variable speed controller on a Coronet 3 lathe?

Its just a matter of replacing your motor witha 3 phase 240v motor then getting a VFD and start and stop buttons and wiring

Maybe do a magnetic motor conversion,
Have a look here, don't know anything more than others use them for variable speed stuff.
