    Default Wells Index Tooling

    I'm sorry guys, but I can't for the life of me figure this out. I bought a Wells Index mill (it's a project) and it came with some tooling. I tried searches and Wikipedia, but can't figure out what I have. I read Wells has B&S #9 taper, but those dimensions didn't match the ones I have.

    Can someone clue me in?

    Thanks!!

    the part where the drawbar threads in is 0.675" and the big end is 1.25"

    Scroll on down to the "NMTB (Quick change) Shanks". Machine Tool Shanks (Tapers) I think that you'll find it to be an NMTB 30.

    Hope that helps,

    It's an NMTB30 taper.
    Google is your friend.

    I know it's irritating when people just get lazy and post without researching first, but I actually spent a good while looking. I thought CAT 40 at first, but that didn't match. And I know it wasn't Morse. I should have kept at it a little longer.

    Thanks for getting me tuned up!

    Actually being Wells it is most likely QC30 but that and NMTB30 are mostly interchangeable if you have a drawbar. You only run into problems sometimes if using the QC30 collar.

    I have a drawbar. It came with several tool holders and a Jacobs chuck, so I should be fine for now.
