    Default K&T Milwaukee Comparison Chart?

    I'm driving myself crazy trying to find this really wonderful PDF I had for awhile. As I recall, it was a hand-drafted table (versus type-set) that provided a wealth of information for the various models of milling machine. It was not a flashy sales brochure, just a 2-3 page document that gave dimensions, weight, spindle taper, spindle HP, etc. for each size in the H and K series (or maybe it was the CH and CK, don't remember). Anyone here know what I'm talking about? Even better, do they know where I can download it? I've been going through the Vintage Machinery website but, short of clicking every one of the 300+ files, I don't know what else to do! It may have been shared by someone here several years ago. I don't remember.

    I currently own a 3H/3CH Universal mill (the body casting says 3H but the speed selector and drive appear to be from a CH) but I have a lead on a 3K. I know the 3K is heavier with more power at the spindle and larger table. I was wondering if the over-arms were the same diameter, though. That table would be so handy for this kind of quick comparison...

    Have '39 and '40 catalog and also '57

    3K was in 1940 - Plain, Unversal, Vertical respectively - 7800, 8250, and 8500

    As of 1957 there was no K or CK, but the similar 4CH would have been 9250, 9600, and 10400

    Both my '39 and '40 full line catalogs have the "hand drafted" pages - at least to the machine itself

    3K and 3CK have much larger over arms - same as on 4H, and 4CH

    That is exactly it! Thank you so much. I don't know why I wasn't finding it. I must have scrolled that list of publications for an hour this morning looking for a likely title. I've downloaded now so I won't "lose" it again.

    Thanks John - that's what I figured. I always heard the "K" series was built on the casting for the next size larger, so a 3K would have 4H over arms.
