motor for lathe

Hello guys,
If anybody understands the electric motors please give me advice. I run a small gunsmith workshop. My motor is burnt on the lathe. I will take a new, but the variety is a problem of choice. Which brands are more recommended for the lathe? thanks

Guys, I have not easy choice. I googled the baldor AC type motor
However, it the power is too big for my single phase shop. At any way, I will have to order the VFD too (it is additional expense.) As another option, I found the 1ph weg motor. The disadvantage is that is manufactured in brazil. Very risky. Can you give tips?
