Question VFD spike filter between the drive & motor

I have a YASKAWA 19.5amp 220vlt VFD and a MasterMotor 3hp/3ph 575 rpm /13.5 amp motor. I was recommended to get a filter between the drive and the motor to avoid voltage spikes to the windings (1949 motor)

Do any of you that are familiar with this know of a brand and what type I should get? it's for a band saw, I thought about coating the windings instead,what say you?

I am from ContractorTalk and I am no electrician, it's for my shop...just being honest.
