A phase converter is easy to make...don"t need capacitors. Use a small single phase (1/2 or 1hp) to spin a three phase motor until it"s running, then shut off the small motor. google "home made phase converters" for ideas and wiring plans. I don"t understand where the pain comes in.

Years ago I had heard of phase converters, did not understand them so I did not want one. I can wire 110 or 220 single phase things. We had an electrician at work we called two wire. That might be where I fit in, two wires and a ground. Looks like a VFD might be the way to go.

You can even kick or rope start that 3 phase, rotary phase converter, motor. All you need to do is get it started turning before applying power.
