Splitting a G0516 into a separate lathe and mill

I'm only posting this because I've read other guys talk about replacing the cord end on the mill. DON'T DO IT! A standard PC power supply cord will take the mill cord end and convert it to a standard 3-prong plug. In addition it'll give you another 3' or so of reach. If you ever decide to put the mill back on the lathe (to sell it or to make room for some real equipment), you'll still have the original plug end.
There are no rules here, we're trying to accomplish something!
