Normally bearing noise will happen in both directions, forward and reverse.
You didn't mention the model # of the lathe itself, but here are few things that you can do to narrow the scope of the problem.
1) Your motor probably turns at the same RPM regardless of spindle speed. So, if your spindle is turning at say 150rpm, and you hear the click at the same speed as 500rpm, then the noise is likely coming from the motor, or the transmission.
2) Most motors also turn in 1 direction. Verify that yours follows this or not. If the motor doesn't reverse, then again, you are likely looking at the problem being in the transmission.
3) If the clicking noise is present all the time, then you can eliminate the tail piece if you don't have work in the spindle.
4) Try disconnecting the motor from the transmission, and see if noise goes away. If it does, then you should be able to rotate the transmission by hand, and possibly feel the noise as it occurs.
5) Otherwise, with the motor disconnected, rotate the spindle to see if you can feel the clicking noise.
6) A definite sign of bearing failure will be play on the input shaft, spindle, or an intermediate shaft. Check these and make sure that there is no lateral movement.
It would be best for you to contact the manufacturer and obtain a parts manual for your lathe. Then you are able to see how the lathe is assembled, as well as likely sources or areas that can be the source of your clicking noise.

SOURCE: how can one use a
You need a phase converter. The link below is a a selection from Grizzly. You can also find them on e-bay. There are two types - static (no moving parts) and rotary (much more expensive). The rotary type give you full performance delivering true 3-phase power to your machine. But for a minor loss in power (maybe 20%) the static type does the job quite well - assuming you don't need all of the power that your 3-phase motor can deliver. Here's the link:
good luck. Vote if you found this helpful. Al K
