Also it’s a 3 phase. Is it possible to convert to household power or it’s there a converter out there... or should I sell it and buy a different machine as it’s a great big heavy thing. Anyone know what there worth ?

    Its already single phase, going off the data plate it would require 59 amps at 220v, you would have to move a jumper plate inside from 415 to 220

    I may be forming words with my fundament, but i suspect transformer tigs are usually wired across 2 of the 3 phases, and that shows (label on the back) that it'll run from 220v so you should be able to use it - BUT note the current draw, 58 amps at full chat! You'd have to open it up and move some links on the transformer, have a yinormous socket and cable to a 45 or 63 amp type C MCB...
