Imperial horizontal mill electrical


Jan 16, 2022
I have recently acquired a 5200 pound hunk of iron it says IMPERIAL across the top. (I am struggling to add a photo here). The research I have done has not yielding much for results, but it appears that this may be an Italian copy of a Cincinnati #3 horizontal milling machine??? It has a vertical head attachment on it, with what I think is 50nmbt spindle, and I can’t find any serious mechanical flaws, but some goober has made a mess in the electrical control box. I straightened out the wiring through a contactor to the main motor, and have made it run, but him trying to figure out the controls. Any information about this machine, especially electrical, would sure be appreciated. Thanks guys!
