bringing up this old thread I recently purchased a Kearny trecker vertical mill serial # 26 889 wondering if anyone had any info on it
Thank you guys. That is awesome to know that it is so old. Makes it more special to me. Also think it is cool it probably assisted in the war effort in some way. Wish I knew its whole history.
Question John, what happens when they rolled the numbers over? I know this created headaches for Monarch Machine when they used lot numbers. They solved this by going to a 6 digit serial number in the late 20's. SN-01000 was the first use in 1927, if memory is good.
Folks, I am that guy that went to an auction and came home with an unexpected treat. I bought a Kearney and Trecker, Model D Rotary Mill, serial number 16-5286.
here's my challenge, I have a drawer full of End Mills, but no chuck, collets, or what I would call a Tool holder.
I'm told it has been modified to accept a brown and sharp style Tool.
Im also told it has a 30 Taper Spindle.
any expert out there that can help me sort through this?
I am piggy backing on prior posts. Looking at K & T universal No. 2 BS with serial number of 15-1121. Like to know approximate age and some specifics on weight and what the "BS" suffix references.Number 29 in a lot of 35 made August 1942... Isn't it nice to have this information for all to share?
