If the machine is paid for with a check at the time of purchase as stated in the question, it’s a straight forward transaction with a simple book entry.

The entry would be:
DR - Assets, Capital Machinery
 CR - Assets, Bank Account

In addition, depreciation accounts needs to be set up at the same time:
Depreciation, Capital Machinery (an Expense account)
Accumulated Depreciation, Capital Machinery (a Contra-Asset account)
