    Default CraigsList Peoria: K&T Vertical Head for 3-5/8" Overarms

    I found this while searching for a vertical head for my 2CHL. The seller describes it as fitting K&T machines with 3-5/8" overarms but doesn't mention the overarm spacing. It looks like there is an unmounted drive gear - who knows if it is actually for that head. At $500 though, someone is probably going to get a reasonable deal.

    I just realized that the gear in the photo is straight cut. All of the other drive gears for vertical heads that I've seen are helical. It may not be for that head at all.

    2H and 2CH. (?) Never had straight cut gears to drive with. Unit will have a raised machined pad with serial and lot number stamped therein - will give age

    On Edit:

    '17 catalog neglects to comment on over arm dimensions

    2H and 2CH will be 8.375" out to out on overarms

    I agree head appears to be from that period - and if so it will be plain bearing

    Double over arms were patented in 1913, so it could be nearly that old

    Been looking for one for a while. Thanks!

    While I'm waiting to hear back from them, Anyone have the drive gear, if I end up getting this, and need it?

    If the head and overarms came from the same machine which I think they did then this came off an older machine like a 2B or 3B. Notice the clamping method on the overarm. No clue if the dimensions are the same as the "modern" machine that were produced starting in the mid 30s.

    Looks like a unit from a much earlier machine if those arbor supports are any indication... May be drive gear for unit but later ones definitely had helical gears.....Kearney & Trecker Co. - Publication Reprints - Attachments for Milwaukee Milling Machines - Catalog | VintageMachinery.org As mentioned earlier, there should be a number stamped on the unit..
