Fairly new lurker here, electronic newbie. I just obtained a 3 HP
Baldor DC motor catalog number 6d6203. Nameplate reads:

VOLTS 180A/200/100F
AMP 13.2A/45/9F
RPM 750
Service Factor 1

May I please have a recommendation or direction on how I might get a
motor controller for this DC motor. The application is for a medium
metal lathe spindle drive. I would at least like to have variable
speed and torque, electronic braking and instant reverse. Reasonable
pricing would be definitely desireable, specific surplus sourcing is
preferred to new because of price. Input power would be 120 or 240VAC
single phase. I can follow schematic diagrams and do fairly well with
electronic assembly/soldering without understanding the electronic
components and what they do for those who would like to direct me to
some kit or someones homebuilt controller. Any constructive input
would be deeply appreciated.
