    Yep, if nothing else, the riggers on site will bid on it for scrap value, at least that's what they do around me. Pretty easy money for them, since they already have all the equipment there and...

    Thanks,for now, I'll just move those jumpers around to set it to low voltage. That way I can at least function test the machine, and see how it works. If there aren't 2 jumpers on the transformer,...

    Thank you so much! This is extremely helpful, and I can definitely handle it. The gray contactor/starter in the middle is definitely not original to the machine, but everything else appears to be...

    Yeah, I agree with this, especially since its relatively close. Look for riggers, and also check with towing and recovery services. Lots of them are familiar with and move machines all the time, so...

    I just spent a good bit of time trying to figure something similar out, for a machine that weight about the same. I don't think you can get away from paying the $500 to get it loaded by the auction...

    Thanks, right now, I'm looking to see if I can find a transformer fairly cheap, and use that to test the machine out. If I can't find one, I'll start looking at what you mentioned. The wiring...

    Series II Bridgeport electrical diagrams

    I recently purchased a series 2 bridgeport at an auction. It had a label on the panel that it was 480v, and I confirmed the wiring in the spindle motor was wired up for high voltage. I do not have...

    Thanks everyone for the information, and hopefully I'll be able to use it in the future. Unfortunately, the price went higher than I could justify, so no VMC for me yet. But I did get a 6x18 fully...

    Thanks for the feedback. Trailer I'm looking at is power tilt, and rated for 11 or 12k payload. Agreed it wouldn't be a good place to learn how to use skates, so hope to use riggers.
