    I have a Palmgren, but I have it on my drill press. It's the greatest thing since sliced bread on the drill press, but I tried milling with it and will never make that mistake again.

    Just looked at an ad for a lathe.

    Says he is the original owner.

    Lathe is from the 1970's.

    Did some research - the seller was born in 1992.

    I might, but finding them is a whole 'nuther story.

    I'm up to my elbows in the leftover tooling from my dad's shop and still trying to sort all that out.

    He's asking for one with a 5C mount on the back, not one that mounts to a spindle with threads or a camlock.

    They can be used on things like spin indexers that take 5C collets.
