Van Norman 1V


Oct 20, 2009
I have had to convert my VN 1v collet system to a R8.Getting the correct collets in the UK is a nightmare.With the R8 I loose a little rigidity.I can get metric and imperial collets from most engineering shops and they are not to costly.I have kepted the arbors for my 4 tiped 50mm rose cutter.I think that I have just picked up the bargain of the year.A D`andrea TA120.Someone must have scraped a job and took it out on the B`head,breaking the handle and all the knobs.It was sold as spares £70 -no boring bars and box.I have started building it up and every thing works .Quick traverce and 2 feeds.Quite a bit of equipment.I cant get any picture of mill and boring head on the forum.They are on photobucket http://s1234.photobucket.com/albums/ff419/carphil13/
