    I suspect that Ross is correct, in which case you may not have missed the other accessories.
    You could do worse than ask David Samways at Anglo Swiss machine tools.

    Sorry Bill - It was a long time ago (2003/4) before mobile phones took pictures of everything.

    Wasn't a Brook Crompton but it was 90 frame sized B5 flange mounting metric motor. Standard kit made around the world and I'm sure that Brook Crompton make them in that size too.

    When I was faced with this problem I took a normal, flange mounting metric framed 1.5 HP motor and extended the shaft. It fitted inside the old pancake flange and worked perfectly with a VFD.

    Looks like a machine that has been cared for, even if there's been grease used recently rather than oil used. My hunch is that it'll clean up fine. Interesting that the early MH600's used lever gear...

    I have a similar era late 60's MH600 and it has INT40 tapers in both spindles. At some point in the 60's Maho moved from MT4 to 40 taper. Likewise the 50's plain bearing vertical heads are much more...

    Depends which era MH700 you have.
    The 60's/70's "rounded" types used either MT4 or ISO40. MT4 won't have the drive dogs of the ISO40 so it should be easy to tell.
    If it's a later "square" machine I...
