So you guys are getting me in trouble and stirring up the ideas in my head...we won't talk about the voices. lol When I was looking for the video for the motor and VFD for another thread I came across a video of excactly what I wanted to do since I got my motor and VFD. Check it out. My drill press is pretty much the same but different name on it. I wish I could say the same about his lathe. Mine is smaller and older but very happy with it and if I had the VFD set up it would be awesome. He even gives a neat tip about near the end of the video.
