So first of all I guess, I owe you a picture on how to lower a milling machine's undercarriage WITHOUT taking the mill off it's pedestal.
And then there's the other bit, as the title says, it's alive by now.
Obviously there was a 50:50 chance of doing it wrong and guess what... well the motor came wired up correctly to run CCKW from the factory. I also moved the switch from the knee to the column, because oil had already started dripping onto the switch and the cable routing was terrible from the factory.
Sorry for the lack of pictures/videos of the machine making some serious swarf, I simply haven't had time yet.
