    Post good find

    I found this Elliot 181 horizontal mill,and got it for free!



    Apparently it was not much used as it blew the circuit breaker when fired up.

    oh well i could try and see what i could do.

    I pulled out the electrical guts and found that;-

    1- the motor was single phase,nice i thought it was 3 phase.

    2 - it was 21 amps which might explain why it did not work on a 15 amp circuit.

    3 - a wire had been pinched againct the coverplate and had arced.

    I wired up with new wire pluged it into a 20 amp circuit and away she went HA!!! HA !
    !!!!!!!!!

    still have to find things like new handles
    30 INT tooling-vertical milling attachment..........

    That really makes me want to send you all kinds of free stuff thistle.

    BTW weird, how do I go about mothing so I can get a molders bench? Do I just have to catch the moths or what?

    Nice ! Congratulations. Makes you think maybe Santa does exist.

    If you can't find the attachment, you can always build one and write an article, then you could get HSM free too.
