Ok I went with the L15 20p as suggested and it is cooper brand , made in Mexico and then I picked up the SO 12 wire made in the USA good for 600v 20amp . That is just for the grinder .
I need to figure out what I need for the mill. I was talking to the owner of the electrical supply place I found today "state electrical" and he was explaining to me the set up . Are any of you guys really good with electrical schematics ? I can uploa the PDF of the schematic to my mill. What he was explaining was that maybe 480 went in at one time and there is a transformer that steps down the power . But that's where I get foggy . I don't understands step downs , step ups and starters very well , yet at least. So anyone who can help me review these schematics would be my hero
Basically I want to run the machine how it was setup to run with a main power in and then it powers the other motors.
Here is the PDF http://stellarsmithing.com/cincinnatiTM/TMwiring.pdf
it is a schematic of this:http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/aa4 ... C2101F.jpg
The Gentleman at State Electric told me he can get the main cut off switch and rod for me as well which is super cool!
anyways I need to run a main wire into the machine which will feed everything else. Can any one get me started in the right direction?
