    I download a copy from the tree yahoo group and emailed it to him. There are scans online but yours might come out better.

    Do not know if the OP eve got satisfactory information, but I worked for 10 years with VGC and UVR machines and loved them. Once you get the hang of adjusting the collets, it is a very fast system to change tools.

    The only downside is that the Z and ZZ collets do not like interrupted cuts. The vibration sometimes causes the collet holder to open up and drop the tool.

    That's because they [that shop] look, not observe or understand it. This is an old thread; yet I'm positive in 2011, hordes of googling pros and good guessers could generate a search query.
    It also means they were more operators than machinists without the inquisitive nature, or initiative to manipulate the damn thing. And however long they had it, the manual wasn't preserved or a replacement acquired.
    Proof?
    As stated in post #2, M.B. Naegle had [the] a answer just six minutes later. The U shaped slide gives a surface to unlock the drawbar, which pulls on the collet closer. Tree's are first rate mills, far more rigid than Bridgeport patterned, aka turret, mills.
