    I agree with all the responders to this thread before mine, but there are very accurate scroll chucks that repeat well across their clamping range, but they are rare indeed. I own only two that do...

    You are correct of course, but time is money and the time it takes to identify, value, count and then advertise usually costs more than the end item is worth. Everything is always a balance in the...

    I just finished the restoration of a DoAll 1612 contour saw. A contour saw is very versatile and band changes is just minutes, even with the guide changes. I am super impressed with the DoAll. My saw...

    I think that chart is quite dated. My 10k was bought in 1980 and the spindle has a morse taper number 3. This chart says it should have a number 2.

    Brad,
    Check eBay. I just did a search this morning for hand wheels and ran across a bunch and one was stated as for a Bridgeport. It may not be what you want, but it's worth a go.
