Nice!! That s a heck of a machine. And it sounds like it s running perfectly. Did you have to do anything to the bearings or motor, or was it ready to rock when it arrived?

Just had to clean many years of dirt and grime off the table and change the motor wiring from 440 to 220. Bearings are amazing- it takes 3 minutes for the head to stop once I cut off power. Would like a brake.

I think some three phase motor controllers provide braking capabilities…
