I cobbled up a 50 hp rotophase, using the plans over on

I have a residential 200 amp service, and the rotophase is running
off a 100 amp breaker.

I routinelly run my 3-phase linde transformer mig welder off it,
as well as run it thru a transformer to step it up from
220 volts to 575 for a drill press I have.

I would like to have 3 phase and may do it one day but not for this welder. It is much to large for my needs. Although my friend's 500 amp Lincoln is the smoothest welding machine I have ever touched and I have had ahold to a lot of different machines.
You do the best you can with what you've got.
