    Default Kearney & Trecker Autometric Model C-16x24

    I just picked this one up through a gov auction. Including all the fees I am out a total of $225.53.

    Heaviest machine I have picked up so far. She's a beast.

    They let me rummage through their stuff, but was unable to find the extension that would have come with it when new. They got it from the ship yards in Duluth MN, about 15 years ago. They cut two key-ways with it in that 15 years. They thought it was a milling machine until someone told them otherwise. They asked me what it is used for. LOL..

    It currently has one 40 NSC collet that has a morse tapper to jacobs adapter. Not sure what size morse yet. Or it could be just a 40 NSC to jacobs, but will know for sure when I take it out and get a look at it.

    Picture for enjoyment.

    Default Tooling for K & T Vertical Autometric

    I ran one of these Precision Vertical Boring Machines when I was an Apprentice at K & T during the early 1980's. Used it only for drilling/boring holes. No milling. It was a easy to use, robust machine. I currently have a Horizontal Autometric, with an R-8 spindle, in my shop.

    I have a No. 40 K & T tapered holder and Jacobs chuck that might fit this machine. I also have some extensions that might be for your machine. Send me a PM and I will send you some photos of the tooling.

    Took the collet or chuck out and it is a K&T 40 with a no.3 morse with a no. 3 morse to 3 jacobs adapter.

    However, it looks like the morse to jacob adapter is for a drawbar and the collet is for a tanged adapter. LOL.
