Spaces and paragraphs make long posts easier to read.Here are a couple more pics. One shows a bolt on the top of the head with a large round handle welded to it. Does anyone know what that is for? If I take it out it is a dark hole that goes into the depths of the machine. Might that be the oil reservoir perhaps?? Then a front view of the machine. We got power hooked up to it today and everything works. XY box works, power feed works, forward and reverse on spindle work, rapid traverse works, spindle moves faster and slower when the speed selector is moved, everything works great. There are two start/stop buttons you can see on the front of the machine. The bottom one starts and stops the spindle. The top one does not seem to do anything. You can hear contacts when buttons are pushed but we looked in the box and it didnt seem to be wired up to anything so not sure what its original purpose was for. One odd thing that happened is we wired a plug to it and plugged it in and it burned a wire on a relay in the phase converter. What the heck. I use that phase converter all the time without any problems. So we bypassed the relay in the phase converter and very quickly plugged it in and it tripped the breaker. So we (I say we but my friend is the electrician and was doing all the work) got to poking around and found that the main hot wire running to the transformer for the xy box, someone had taken that wire and put it on the ground connection. It would never have worked that way and obviously didnt so not sure why on earth someone did that. After taking it off ground and wiring it to the correct spot everything worked great. Tomorrow he will get a new relay and throw it in the phase converter so I can properly use the on off switch again. It came with two drawbars. One in the spindle and one inside the housing of the mill. I looked in that little door and it was in there along with a bolt/nut for a vice. Also some paperwork from august of 1959 with a maintenance form of sorts for the machine which was pretty cool. It cost the government I think it said $2450 when purchased new and I paid $1100 for it.
