Hi Bill - Great Electrical Repair Question!
I would start by contacting the manufacturer who knows the machine better than anyone and get their advice. Your options from my experience will be to use a transformer to convert the voltage properly, and the manufacturer may know of a reliable source for such a transformer

The exact specifications of the type of electrical power requirement of the mill and the exact power that you have available will need to be taken into consideration, along with Starting Current loads etc.
Be Careful and Be Safe - Never Work on Energized Circuits!
