    Default power feed for large mills...

    It seems almost all power feeds on the market is intended for Bridgeport Series 1 machines.

    Do they make power feed for larger machines, like Lagun FTV-4 sized machines or larger?

    I just added power feed to my mill but it took a lot of modification because the unit was intended for Bridgeport Series 1 and its clone, and my machine is larger. The leadscrew shaft is 22mm rather than 5/8", and I know other machines have larger leadscrew shaft (In Taiwan 20mm is standard).

    They don't all come with power feed built in, so the question is, how do you add power feed to those mills, without a lot of drilling and tapping?
