    Oh boy!  I love resurrecting old machines!  Can't wait to see more of Das MAHO Machtcheinin lol.  Great video, thumbs up.

      Ever in communication with other YouTuber Marco Reps? He’s building a CNC mill from scratch currently. This is a completely different approach but if you’re gutting the electronics maybe you could benefit?? I obviously don’t know your background, skills, or capabilities but just throwing in my two cents

        Just a power conditioner. Usually for vfds. I wouldn’t worry

          Looks like a big 3 phase isolation transformer to me.

              Question: Water based coolant or oil based coolant (for your milk). Thoughts? Even better: YouTube video :)

                  Hey 😂 sounds like "Freysmaschina" say it like "Fras-machina"

                  "Mill" in German is "Mühle" ( a tiny house with a wooden wheel moved by water)

                    Every time I get something else, I have to rearrange much of what’s there. The well organized shop, with plenty of walk space has become a confused place.

                      Old Profiler Mills use Hydraulic Motion Control, so that wasn't as wild of a guess as you thought Tony.

                        Alright This Old Tony, I'm back, watching all your videos again.

                        Waiting for the weather to get slightly better to get started on building my new workshop, near 600 squarefeet for the imperial squad. Cant wait to fill it with tons of metal working equipment t that's useless to me because I'm a carpenter 😂 but by god I gotta make some chips!

                        Stay an inspiration, and more vids on this Maho please 😁

                            One of the reasons you do a 1:1 transformer is for DC isolation. This prevents things like grounding yourself through your machine or say, if there's a power leakage in one of your high powered motors somehow, it doesn't shunt to ground through the machine body and cause things to heat up an absolute ton.

                            Your 1:1 transformer is actually really important for safety and you should replace it as soon as possible.

                              kiddos getting big. dont mean to make you feel old but, then again... that is your name. its been fun watching your videos the past few years. love to just chat with you sometime. maybe make some stuff with you? i dunno. just like your content and its fun listening to someone who sounds like me.

                                Well there is grime and well, of course there is weird grime and robot urine is the worst. Lots of scrubbing will fix that. Now the manuals you will need them but you might just want to throw them away and put in a good PLC and make your own manuals.

                                      That Transformer could be used for galvanic isolation. Check the encyclopedia of your choice if you want to know why it is (almost) mandatory in a all-metal machine like this

                                              Yes MAHO. Worked on some of the finest 80s versions of their CNC machines, talk about obsolete. Has Siemens drives that were represented in Greek literature. No information on them anywhere. A monochrome CRT. Stopped using it as the drives and all the spares, slowly fail one at a time. Shame really, she is a lovely thing. There were 3 running at one point, slowly dying one at a time, one giving up its organs for the others. Deckel MAHO :)

                                              Coolant pumps are always full of crap. Either rust, gunky junk or the wiring's insulation has gotten covered in coolant over the years, gone brittle and fallen off. The rancid coolant smell is what's giving off a big clue.

                                              Seen worse panels. That big thing will be a line filter, sure it will be the inrush current screwing everyone over that plugs it in. Not necessary for your purposes.

                                              I've seen professionals convert machines to CNC type. It tooks them months of full time work. So I wish you best of luck!

                                                      At first I thought this looks a lot like one of the machines in my former schools shop (HTL, Austrian kind of school that gets you university entry qualification and professional training at the same time) which they where getting rid of a year ago.
                                                      No sane person would buy those...
                                                      But than you said that there were almost no scratches in the table. Well that made it clear. It could not be one of those machines.

                                                          Those drawings are delightful. I started work on a modification to a 1950s aircraft and have always an affinity with the dying trade of engineering drawing ever since.

The drawings you have for the MH 600 version should be close to my version of mill. I have spent many hours hunting on the internet and had no luck until I seen your video. I look forward to your reply, Kind Regards Dion.

The sound might actually be low oil, but in fact some of those pumps wear and get louder. Plain bearings on the rods, lubed by the hydraulic oil mostly. Also i'm not sure if the hydraulic pump will be fast enough to do axis clutch actuation if it is unable to eject tools fast. But might have air trapped in lines, with a stuck ball checkvalve or something. The breaker-tripping brick you disabled most likely just seperated all the control voltages from mains, so that if you ever wear down insulation on any control line, the body of the mill does not electrify you.
