I just switched my Emcomat 7 lathe from a 3-phase 380V motor to a 220V 1-phase. My problem is that the control buttons have different wiring on 220V/380V models. Does anyone have a set of buttons for a 220V for sale or know a way of wiring up the 220V motor myself?

Did you use a 2 speed motor?
Although it is mostly aimed at the VP series lathes the Emco Yahoo Usergroup does have quite a bit of info on the Emcomat 7&8 machines, worth looking through the files there as there may be some wiring information.

If the buttons are acting as ON and OFF control for a contactor type starter then you will need to check the coil voltage, it may be 380v in which case you will need to replace with a 220v type.
If you post some pictures of all the parts concerned it may be possible to help with positive information rather than guessing.
