Hi all. Just picked up a 540 surface grinder. 1968 vintage
I'm running a RPC running @ 240v
The 540 is set up to run at 440v
The primary on the transformer that came with it is rated for 208v.
I'm getting around 500v on the secondary. Any issues running the grinder at that voltage?
Is there anything I should look out for maintanance wise?
It could use a new belt. I cleaned the 2 dead mice out of the hydralic tank along with a few years of crud. Cleaned the screens. The oil acually looked quite clean so I ran it through a fine screen a few times and put it back in to test the machine. To my suprise everything works. It hadn't been ran since the early 80s.
Coolant tank is next.
Just picked up a pail of Boss way 32 oil to replace the mouse contaminated stuff.
Thanks in advance for any help.
