johnny williams:
Does anyone know of an inexpensive device that will convert 400Hz to 60 Hz?

analog tech motor-generator.

digital tech frequency converter.

both have been used on US submarines. The frequency converter is current issue.

What are you trying to power?

johnny williams:
House,shop whatever

non reactive loads will run on 400Hz no prob, not sure about powering switching power supplies.

I know an old trick to run 400Hz radio gear on 60Hz was to wire a second transformer in with the respective input and output windings wired in series. It usuable ran warm but didn't burn out.

You may want to try running a cheap transformer wall brick on 400Hz to see what happens.
