Several year ago, we put together a phase converter in Electric Motor Controls class. We used it to power up an old Buffallo iron worker, in a buddy of mine's fab shop. Ray Systma - our instructor at PCC, was a real guru on electricity and knew a lot about how to make his classes interesting. He had a homemade Tesla coil that would throw an arc all the way up a set of rabbit ears. It was kind of interesting to pass a bare hand through an arc spanning over two feet with out even feeling a tickle.. For special effects, movie producers used Tesla coils in the "laboratory" in the old Frankenstein movies.

There are lots of phase converters both manufactured and home-built, available out there these days. I was surprised to see how many basement phase converter builders there were out there, that were willing to divulge their trade secrets, online.
Here is one to add to the collection:
