    Yes, it was the chuck I wanted. I am a great fan of Jacobs ball bearing drill chucks, so wanted to try this Japanese version. It has a J6 taper.

    The arbor was just a curiosity.

    One very nice...

    Agreed, the Chiron holder is is not the same as mine.
    Just mentioned the Chiron because the guy with the P&W above had converted some Chiron holders for his machine. Although I am not 100% sure he...

    Further to vancbiker's posts, I had a look for a P&W Tapemate Model C. It seems they are the same as (or made by) Fanuc Drillmate Series C.

    This guy has a few videos of the P&W machine, the...

    Poorly worded question perhaps - I would like to know what machine it was originally made for. The large bearing makes it fairly machine specific I am guessing.

  7. Arbor - can someone identify the machine it belongs to please?

    I bought a drill chuck recently; it was attached to this unidentified arbor.
    I wondered if someone could tell me what machine this would suit?
    The markings are "Fanuc" "Big" "30-J6".
    There is...

    It might simply be the chuck jaws are bell mouthed, so allowing the shaft to bend and move.

    I doubt the chuck is loose or the spindle needs any attention. In fact I would strongly advise leaving...

    Pressbrake, thanks for the photos.

    Armorer,
    After you marked out the location of the threaded inserts, why not drill 3/8" holes in the hardboard and bolt the inserts in place? Gluing the inserts seems bound to fail.

    I would have thought so too - but look at the turned finish on the largest diameter! Rough as guts!

    I don't know why the seller is charging you import tax. If you have too much trouble, I can recommend YouShop which is a service run by NZ Post.
