The very FIRST thing is to se if theres 3 phase past your location,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Next then check with the Utility provider for their charge to install 3 phase transformers and provide a drop to your shop,,,,,,,,,,,,,Then get price bid from a licensed electrical contractor.

If out side theres ONLY two wires (Hot on top Neutral on bottom) that's only single phase service and unless 3 phase is close by the cost may be prohibitive. If outside theres 3 or 4 wires (Delta or Y) the cost will be wayyyyyyyyyyyy less, only the transformer and service drop

In the event you do get three phase, Id consider using a 120/240 volt Three phase Four wire red leg center tapped Delta so you have regular 120 volt single phase (convenience receptacles and lights and 120 volt loads), plus 240 volt single phase (small welders and 240 volt air compressor perhaps) plus 240 volt three phase (big motors and compressors and other 240 volt three phase loads)

Been meaning to thank you, and all those who walked me through my 3 phase. I'm up and running, and it works great. Thanks again to you, Dusty, Dr. Sportster, B&D and all others that chimed in.
