I purchased a 7.5hp Kearney and Trecker 2K horizontal milling machine last year. It was made in 1945 and has a department of defense plate on it. Apparently it had some electrical problems because a previous owner rewired it using modern electrical components (a disconnect switch, 3 fuses, a transformer, a contactor, and a modern on/off switch). Judging by the workmanship, he did a very good job. But I've always wondered whether he bypassed some less important circuitry (sensors, etc.), particularly when I see a picture like the last one in this listing:What is all that stuff?
Does anyone own a 2K with an original electrical panel? Could you describe the contents, or maybe post a picture to the dropbox?
