Looking for Info On These CNC Motors For Replacement Answered

I purchased a surplus 2-axis CNC machine with built by Yamaha. I hoped to rebuild it into a new machine for myself, but it ended up requiring 200 volts AC for the controller and motors, which I don't have access to. I sold off the controller already. I don't know too much about professional CNC macahines, hoping someone has some input.

I am hoping to replace the motors with ones in the same form-factor that run on DC or 120v AC(if such thing exists), preferably stepper type. I do not know what form-factor/package/mounting style to look for, or even if any are available with the power requirements I want. 

Motors are the same for both axis and are part#: TS2620N664E122, attached are some pictures. Thanks,

I noticed the pictures aren't motors, they are exotic position sensors called resolvers. Can you show any more photos of the parts ?

I considered a step-up transformer but I only have about 10A 120v AC where the CNC will be kept, so not really an option. Controller stated 10-20A at 200v(not 220v), so I would have needed to upgrade my electricity service, which would cost thousands.

The controller was a Yamaha RCX222, it was really complicated, and I was unable to find(that I could download) any software to interface with it. I already got more than my money back out of the investment, so not worried if I end up not using any of it myself, or have to invest more.

Will cost you an arm and a leg to get it going now that contorller is gone - it is the most vital part of the machine.
Depending on what is left it is better to start from scratch than trying to use these parts.

Shame, all you needed was a transformer, and you could have had a beautiful CNC machine.
