    I have a NIB Sherline 1045 5C shank with 3.1" 4-jaw, bought years ago from MSC. The shank and body is all one piece of steel. It looks to be very well made, but it is still sealed in the plastic...

    The inner flap of the case has printing that seems to describe each type of bit, but the picture is unclear, so I can only read a few letters.

    I have D bits, but none of them are made from twist...

    "One big question I have is about the bearings, or should I say bushings. The Spindle is running in huge tapered bronze(?) bushings. I tried my best to set a preload on them, while still having them...

    When I designed and built a small machine tool in 1976, I used Thomson ball bushings and 60 Case shafting. Worked great. The shafting is soft enough down the middle to drill and tap the ends. I...

    I think you are missing the OEM draw bar. The 2MT tooling that fits the spindle can have either inch or metric female threads. I expect the OEM draw bar had metric threads, but I suppose Emco might...
