I'm bidding on an auction for this machine, would Hackspace have space for it?

No we do not have the space

Suspect this is the same one that was mentioned on discord, to which I already said "a cnc bridgeport is not a good fit for the space`’

I saw that and went down the rabbit hole of just how difficult would it be to install three phase at home?

From my experiance the main motors can be set up to 240v 3 phase so use an 240 to 3phase 240 inverter. The control electronics, servo and x/y motors can be set up to work from single phase.  So no need to consider bringing in a 3 phase supply.

If I'd managed to buy the house I wanted, it had a workshop that already had 3 phase, I'd have been bidding a lot harder for this thing!
