Because I want to. I have piles of tooling and don’t hog anything. I know some of you struggle to answer the questions being asked and have to interject your own dialogue which PM has always been known for, but try and stick to the question posed. If you have to once again inject personal opinion, it will be reflective of your inability to actually provide knowledgeable information to the questions I posed.
To those that have offered USEFUL information, I appreciate it.
As of yesterday I was able to see the machines side by side. Yes, I knew there were differences but there was nothing anything with measurements to know until I could see them.
The only solution I am seeing is a S2S ram/turret swap OR for me to machine an adapter for the 2J head mount to larger S2 swivel/knuckle.
The knuckle adapter could be a little complicated if you intend on incorporating the gear & t-slots into the adapter?
Does the series I tracer have a gear in the adapter for rotating the head, if it does, I would adapt that to the series II knuckle?
Page #6 has a picture of the adapter with a provision for the gear......
