    I’ve reduced plenty of drills. Now that the OP has said what he’s doing I still wouldn’t suggest bothering with a six jaw. Four jaw and a split bushing. For only 30 drills you’d be way ahead in time...

    Given the choice I’d rather use a collet than a 6jaw. Is your part too big for a collet?

    Hmmm, I stand corrected, thanks. Didn’t know Bridgeport made or badged surface grinders. I just knew it wasn’t a mill column….

    I also thought pic 5 on second set of pics was mislabeled. It’s not a Bridgeport column. Probably a surface grinder column.

    Nice to see the class reports.

    It’s on a South Bend cabinet.

    Yes, if near me, I’d drive out with intent to buy if in reasonable condition.

    I was lucky enough (?) to use a Myford Tri-lever at school when I was a teenager and my Dad had an Atlas 6” pseudolathe at home. No contest- the Myford could be used to make in tolerance parts...

    I’m just a little guy buying only a few $thou of fasteners/year, so all I ask of businesses is to be open about prices online so I can compare vendors and accurate about actually having stock.

    I like my Bridgeport on a pallet- one made to fit. Mine lives in the corner unless I’m doing something long then just pull out the machine. Simple, and anything else that can go on a pallet is bolted...

    Bob, the oil will still be moved, just on trains that are less safe, use more energy, and cost more.

    It’s all political optics.

    Grab that carbide grinder if you can. You can get white plate wheels for them that make grinding HSS easier esp for thread cutting etc.

    If I recall correctly all Super 7’s have a clutch. If yes, I’d put either a half hp, or at most 3/4 hp 120 volt motor on it. Tefc would be better, but easy enough to rig a chip deflector if open...

    Most small shapers have a hand crank or wheel for setting up (motor off). If the OP’s doesn’t have this, I’d rig up a hand crank before futtzing around with different motors etc. kiSS ;-)
