Something completely unrelated .
I bought a 70 year old Milling Machine ( Will post some pictures later). A “Fritz Werner” 4.100 Horizontal Mill
Fairly similar to the Pic above, The mechanics is in quite good shape shape but the motor is at its end. The old contactors is kapoet and previous operators has bounded just about everything together. So I am considering replacing the motor with a new 1.5 kw motor and VFD to give me some control (I only have 220v on the farm).
Apart from Bearing Man who else could I try (Obviously I would keep the costs as low as possible)
