    Default Recognize This Handwheel?

    I acquired a cast iron handwheel as part of an auction lot, in a box with a bunch of Bridgeport parts. I don't have a Bridgeport (I'm a Millrite owner), but so far the Bridgeport photos I've seen online don't seem to match this wheel. Although the photo looking down the barrel isn't very clear, there's a threaded section in there (1"-24, as I recall). It also has an oil hole with a felt insert for lubricating the shaft.

    Anyone recognize it?

    Looks like the quill fine downfeed manual handle on a Bridgeport. Sits basically right in your face using the mill so people always remove them and they get lost.

    Here's one I made for my Lagun. Turns out Lagun is a different size than a Bridgeport and Laguns price would make the U.S. Military blush.

    I'm looking to sell the handwheel on eBay to help defray the cost of the auction. (I bought the lot to get a rotary table and a super spacer.) I figure it'd be easier to sell the handwheel if I could identify the machine it goes with.

    It doesn't look anything like the fine down feed handwheel on my Bridgeport. Mine looks more like this. This is an aftermarket one, but it's very similar to the original on my machine.

    Definitely not a fine feed handwheel for a Bridgeport with a 1"-24 thread in it!

    Looks more like a traverse feed off a surface grinder.

    With all the people who buy random crap with out knowing anything about it, I wonder how long before we get a post along the lines of, "Hey guys, I was digging through my neighbors trash one day and found this thing. What is it?"

    You really don't need to identify the handle. Just put in on eBay and call it "steampunk". It will sell.
