I took the machine apart to clean it up and i took pictures of all the wires EXCEPT the stinkin 3 power wires that connect to the AC plug.

My best guess is BROWN to BLACK, BLUE to WHITE and GREEN to GREEN/YELLOW.  
I connected it that way but i'm not gonna attempt to plug it in until i get confirmation that it's correct.

Hopefully someone with an oscar knows or can check by taking the 6 small screws off from the bottom metal plate.

I don't know anything about US wiring colours, but if your machine was manufactured in the EU (I think it was) it should follow EU rules for single phase appliances :-

Brown = Phase (live)
Blue    = Neutral
Green/yellow stripes = Earth (ground)

Edit:  just noticed you have an SJ grinder - check the wiring colours in that as a reference - should be the same as above.

Your assumption was right and here's the proof.  It's  a pic I took when I had to take my Oscar apart to replace the heating element.
