    I love the machine, but for all the world it looks functionaly the same as any other horizontal mill except for work envelope.

    I have a K & T Autometric Model B with round ways. It is a precision boring machine, with power feed only on the "Z" axis. However, you can do "light" finish milling by manually feeding the "X" and "Y" axis. The majority of the machining processes are: precision boring, drilling, and reaming.

    I love my machine. It is very versatile for small precision work. It uses NMTB 40 taper tooling and has an adapter for R-8 collets. I also have a full line of K & T No. 40 taper adapters that fits this machine.

    Default K & T Autometric Model B

    Photos of my K & T Autometric Model B attached, as requested. Tooling includes a full complement of NMTB 40 Taper end mill holders, R-8 collet set, and, as shown on the table, various K & T No. 40 Taper adapters.

    The R-8 Collet Holder is a modified NMTB 40 Taper tool holder. I made a spacer and drive keys to minimize the gap between the spindle face and back of the tool holder.

    I will be needing to get one of these to go with my new Autometric Vertical. I posted it in another post. I like how the lines of the machine and some of its features are shared with the Vertical.

    The Vertical is a C and the Horizontal is a B, what about an A. LOL...

    Good luck with you new machine.

    The original Autometric jig borers were made by the Autometric Tool co. in Berkeley, Ca

    That may be where the model "A" came from.

    Would be a handy machine for many odd jobs. Show us the restoration pics.

    I just purchased a K & T Autometric Model B and need tooling for it. I can modify cat 40 tooling but would rather have the original K & T nst 40 tooling. Does anyone have the original tooling available for sale?

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread but I should have one of the Autometric Model B with prismatic ways on the way here (I say should because you never know how eBay transactions are going to end...) I'd like to have more tooling than it has (a single 3/4 EM holder) and I understand that this model can take NMTB 40 tooling. Can someone confirm that for me?

    Additionally, pointers to any operator's manuals or brochures would be helpful. I know about the ones on vintagemachinery.com

    rke[pler,

    The taper of the Autometric is 40 taper. I use anything that is 40 taper and
    mill off the flange, and grind 2 flats. Just copy the 3/4 end mill holder you have.

    Enjoy your Autometric.
