    Default Cincinnati contourmaster

    Hi,
    Last week i found at a retiring machine dealer a cincinnati contourmaster in excellent condition. It had 50 years of crud on it but underneath there was a hardly used copying mill with shaper attachment.
    I cleaned and oiled it up, changed the wipers did a few test cuts and it works great.
    Are there people out there that worked with these machines or maybe someone who has a manual. Figuring the copying atachment out would be a lot easyer with some help.
    Also what grease and oil is recommended would be greatly appriciated.

    Thanks
    Simon

    The 'handle' is a brake on the ball lead screw. It allows for conventional or climb milling by controlling the drag on the lead screw.

    Nice find!

    When those machine were new they cost as much as four or five Bridgeport's.

    Dose that machine still have it's original paint?
