VFD variable frequency drive will allow you to go from 50 hertz to 60 hertz it will also do a myriad of other things to give you better control of speed, reverse function and jog functions which allows the motor always stop at the same place.
I use them on most of my 3 phase machines but also use them to control single phase motors on my lathes. Dialing in exact rpms with a turn of a knob is really a great function. I donít think Iíve paid much more then $100 for any of the VFDís I own. You can call one of the American vfd companies for tec support and help finding the perfect match.
