    Red face Kearney and Trecker Model D

    I am looking for information on Kearney and Trecker Model D Rotary Head Milling Machine. Any and all information is welcomed. I found a thread early that seems to date it to 1925.

    The Serial number is 58-1006-05-0

    I know that it has:

    460 V
    3 phase
    60 cycle

    I am new to all of this and would love explanations on what everything means.

    TIA

    Check your serial number... Should be on the column facing you... I think this machine came out in about 1939.. You may find information here:Kearney & Trecker Co. - Publication Reprints | VintageMachinery.org

    That is the late format for serial, so a recent effort

    Lot of 12 AFTER May 1969 - which is the latest date on that page, but for a previous lot - 1003

    Last lot of 2D machines was 1007, also undated

    This info on page 58-1 in the lot book

    The 2D is a die makers mill. They had several attachments. It's a rotary head mill. I have one that I haven't had the opportunity to use yet. There I'd good information in publication reprints and a 1950s company video that has been put on utube. Watch the video. You will be impressed.
    Collets are near impossible to find They only fit that machine

    Some 2d mills came with B3 spindle which is similar to R8 using a drawbar... The B3 collet is smaller than R8... I suspect my machine came with B3 spindle and somewhere along the line was opened up to R8... I use R8 collets and endmill holders in mine and they work quite well...

    HERE is the 1955 movie "From Print To Product" from Kearney and Trecker which I acquired from an old K&T employee many years ago.. Thanks to Ed for posting: Kearney Trecker 2D Tool and Die Mill Jan 14, 1955 16mm Film - YouTube

    Default Questions about your d mill

    I have a couple of photos of the serial number book I will put here thanks to ramsay1.
