    Default K&T 1H and 2HL spindles

    Hi all,

    From my understanding, the only difference between the K&T 1H and 2HL was the size of the table. Can anyone confirm for me: are the spindles from a 1H and 2HL (both swivel head versions) interchangeable?

    And/or: could the complete head assembly from a 1H be grafted onto a 2HL and vise-versa?

    Thanks,

    Lee

    Identical other than table length is my understanding

    John, any idea if the head just slides off after the 4 bolts are removed?

    Seems reasonable - you'll likely expose a classy spiral bevel gear

    The parts manual says those spiral gears are shipped in mated sets only.
    Wouldn't stop me, but just wondering how big of a problem it would be if two non matched gears were used.

    Thanks for the info. Think I'll still bid on it, though - haven't seen any other options for a replacement spindle come up in the last few months....

    Probably would be noisy if mismatched as in hypoid gears in motor vehicles... Gears are probably lapped at the factory for proper mesh and quiet operation....
