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..........
