    Isn’t everythin in the UK set to run at 50 hz and 220V as opposed to 60 hz 120V here in North America.

    you would need two lines of 110 from separate circuits

    the plug is not the issue, the power supply is the issue

    if you do indeed have the UK 110V plug end then the Mafell user Group has a solution

    Do you have the info from the spec plate?

    It should show power requirements. Is it 50Hz, 50-60Hz, or what?
