Thanks- Bill.

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!

Electrical Tip

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!

The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
