Many machines which did NOT have a ferroresonant transformer 
could be run from 50 or 60 Hz with no problem.  The one 
place it was a problem would be getting the disk spindles 
turning at the right speed.
Matching the available voltage would be the other detail, 
but a standard voltage adjusting transformer would do it 
fairly simply.

But, the ferroresonant transformers needed the right frequency.
