    $2.00/lb sure seems fair. I also like the idea of a couple of chunks of A2 for 2x4x6 blocks. I'd take a couple of those with the balance of the 70 lbs made up of 2-3-ish" dia by bars of stressproof.

    Tough to beat an arbor press with broaches for that size range. Given that wonderful mix of machines, i would think you'd want a nice big ratcheting arbor press anyway. A shaper is super cool but...

    I still have the machine. I removed the spindle per the guidance of among others John O. I've cleaned it up a bit but have not yet shimmed the spindle or fabricated a drive tower.

    I too have a mid '30s RP 14 x 30. I'm not sure what a manual would buy you other than a sense of completeness. You can't buy parts anyway. Anything you need, you'll have to make.

    Thanks for the recommendations. The design of the head is such that no chips can find their way in during use. It rotates about three axes and only the spindle shaft has the lube access port. I...

    Are these things adaptable between different manufacturers with a bit of work or would it be a bridge too far?
