Perhaps one of our UK members could give you some advice.

In the US we have a different philosophy on power point voltages. Our norm is 110/115/120 volts and 220/230/240 volts is something special used for major machines or appliances.

Because of the different electrical systems you'll not find many Erbauer machines here in the US. It may not be possible to safely convert a UK designed appliance / machine to US standard voltages due to the different grounding philosophies.

If I'm not mistaken the UK also uses 50 hertz frequency as opposed to the 60 hertz used in the US. We can get the voltages where we need them easily with transformers, but I don't know of a way to alter the frequency.
