    I would like to ask more experienced people than I (because I am just a beginner:)
    So, I have an air compressor in a garage. It is Craftsman. My friend gave me his motor. But the main problem is that I need a 3phase for that motor. Certainly, I do not have it. I do not have money now to spend additionally on motor, therefore I’m thinking about VFD. If it is possible, please, explain me how to convert it?

    First of all, welcome to the site :welc there is a converter from single phase to 3 phase but it will cost you more than a single phase motor, assuming your compressor is a 5 HP. Good luck :cheers :cheers
