Adding a VFD to a Blum Minidrill/minipress

How to use a 3 phase Blum boring machine/minipress in a shop with only single phase or split phase 220v power. I required the controls panel to run the 3 phase motor through the Teco FM50 VFD which is a nominal 120VAC single phase input and 3 Phase 220v output. This conversion can be done for under $120 and is very simple to perform but only swapping wires and wiring it through the VFD. For any questions on implementing this yourself please message me as I did not get a chance to mention how to wire this in the video.

Teco FM50 VFD (Note: you will want to size it to the HP rating and voltage of your motor):
