Have not got power feed because, from memory, are only supplied in 110 Volt form and the unit and the 240 / 110 volt transformer are quite a costly combination.

Go to your friendly local electrical wholesaler and buy a 240/110 control transformer rated at 200VA.....

if you can wire a 13A plug, you can wire up the transformer easy enough....

I paid around £30 for mine then another £20 for a suitable enclosure....still cheaper than buying from 'tool merchants'

No doubt other members will share their pearls of wisdom...

Hi Derek, sorry I don't know anything else that may be suitable, may be worth looking around second hand places.

Regards Nick.

I bought a proprietry unit that bolted to the mill table, as it was a 110v unit, it need a 110v supply, hence the cheaper route of buying a control transformer rather than a 'proprietry' unit as supplied by the 'tool merchants'...
