bigger motor ?

My experience is that when you switch to a single phase motor you will need more HP like go up to a 7 single phase. and using a bigger tank can over heat the pump and motor, they are rated for a duty cycle. and need a rest, A single phase rotory converter to power the 3 phase would probably cost more than a new compressor, I have a capacitator converter on my Milling machine and end up with 2/3 of the rater power, It wont run it full speed full, load.
