    Scruffy, do you need rigid tapping or would a tapping head work? You wouldn't have to reverse rotation or really know where the spindle is oriented that way. Only have to program correct feed for in...

    I agree, go look at it asap and check it out. Do as much legwork and homework as you can yourself. You will fairly quickly determine if you want it or not without needing to talk to anyone else.
