    You cant get three phase out of a single phase transformer.

    Best case is rotary phase converter into a 3 phase 240 to 575/600v transformer.

    Seriously, I would not worry about the lathe killing you though oil. Its way more likely to kill you through other methods. Just dont eat the paint, that's about the only way it will get in you.
