    If you are lucky you will have the WIAD tube drive. These things run off of single phase and are pretty nice.
    Modular-drive machines, which came after the WIAD machines, also run off single phase. In addition, you can buy solid-state replacements for the tubes and module for reasonable money compared to buying tubes. See this link. That said, my tubes have lasted fine for 10 years in home-shop use, and I have a spare, used set with life left.

    To the extent you can even buy a new 10EE, I understood you would get a 7.5-HP VFD-driven motor with a back gear. For a while allegedly you could get a 10-HP VFD-driven motor without the back gear, but Monarch discontinued it.

    Want to visit Ohio? I have one I'd let go for cheap. Warning ... IT'S BIG AND HEAVY.

    No, I still just push buttons while others move heavy objects. They do not want us to help load cargo. The floor is motorized with drive wheels, and joysticks along the sides of the airplane for the load masters to move the pallets.
