Lathe - alternative power?

Just bought an old 3 phase boxford plain lathe and a 3 phase saw for 50 (U.K.).
It's going in the shed at the bottom of my garden where as yet there is no power.
Rather than obtaining single phase motors, I was toying with the idea of powering them with an old engine or something.
Is this daft?
Has anyone done similar?
