So I buy "Made in USA" so 12 wire and it has black-pink-white-green ... Seriously? Lol

Not that it's a huge deal but electrical codes and diagrams have always been crappy ! And they are always different!



It takes a confident man to use pink wire. :D

Haha ! :lol:

I decided to take the single phase motor off and out a proper pancake 1hp motor on the spindle. That's what it would have come with originally.

I'm very tired , just finished.

Now I'm trying to figure spindle speeds based off the fact this motor has 1720 rpm and the original spindle speeds are based off 1200rpm I also am needing to measure the pulleys properly to make sure they are correct . I am having one heck of a time pulling the drive pulleys out of the machine head though! It looks like I need some sort of special tooling to get the final gears off. What a head ache .

It has a very wide range of tap grinding ability. I have been reading more on it. It was very precise as well! It also has its own diamond dresser to keep the wheel true which is awesome! . Of course I can use it for other things but I will use this mainly as a tool grinder. I have a very old GE bench grinder for other grinding .

Well I haven't actually figured out how to use it yet lol. I understand the principle but the application is a bit different ;)
It is supposed to give the proper angles for a taper , plug and bottoming tap as well as the proper backcut for them as well. One I get the phase converter I will hook this up and YouTube it ;)

Here is that built on diamond dresser

I got the grinder all wired up and because I couldn't find a store that carried a 2.250" wrench local I decided to make my own.

It's just mild steel but I hardened it in oil and it acts like a tuning fork now ;) . It will do the job and then some!

I finally got the manual for this! $67 for a printed copy off a copy machine lol but I complained about the quality so they sent me the PDF as well. Now I can really get moving on cranking up this mill!

You got it! Something that was only in place on the Niagara Falls grid from 1895-1950's this mill came from northern PA before it came to VA wonder where it was before that.
2 phase power is some weird stuff . 4 wires .
