    Default Schaublin 70 turret tooling?

    I've just reconditioned a turret for a 70, and am adapting it to a larger lathe (pratt whitney 7") but upon
    inspection the tooling holes existing in the turret now are 14 mm. Is this a common size or has this been
    modified in the past by a prior owner?

    All my tooling is 5/8 inch shank so I am tempted to bore this up to accept the tooling I do have rather
    than attempting to find more pesky swiss unicorn lips.....

    Thanks much - Jim

    14 MM is a common size if you in a metric country.

    Thanks.

    Did shaublin sell these turrets blank, and the owners bored them, or did they come sized to 14 mm?

    OK so after a while this project is finally done - and photos for those who are interested,
    and my thanks to the information that helped from the folks here.

    And the last few photos are included as well, note the turret holes were bored in place
    for 5/8 diameter tooling.
