50/60 Hz Mains Frequency Converter
By Spencer Chase

Both motor-generator units and electronic frequency converters are
available, but neither is inexpensive.  The cheapest solution would
be to increase the motor pulley size by a factor of 6/5.  The motor
will run a little hotter on 50 Hz if it was designed for 60 Hz so
you need to make sure you don't overload and overheat it.

Best regards,
