460 volt welder in a home


I am trying to correct a mistake I made by purchasing a 460/575/1/60 welder. I was under the impression from the seller that the welder was currently wired up at the plug for 460 and I asked her several times for that information and she wasn’t able to provide me with it. So I bought the machine, spent the money on getting a 50 amp switch put in my fuse box as well as 30′ of 6/3 wire. It wasn’t until I had everything hooked up and tried to strike arc when I looked into the cover of the welder to find out its a 3 phase machine. My question is there a way for me to step up the voltage to 460 as well as get my single phase to 3 phase with out killing the bank?
