    Default WTB Arbor supports for a 1951 #2 Cincinnati Dial Type

    I am looking for arbor supports for a #2 Universal Cincinnati High Speed Dial Type horizontal mill made in 1951. This is a machine that has one large dial for both speed and feed and shifts without a dial lever. The supports would probably have been made out of aluminum. The machine came out of a high school sans supports.

    I am focused on finding a type B support, but would also like a A support if available. I would also love a hinged intermediate support, but I think those are relatively rare.

    Machine dovetail dimensions are approximately:
    4 9/16” narrow part of dovetail
    6 1/16” wide part of dovetail
    1 1/4” height of dovetail
    6 1/4” from bottom of dovetail to spindle center

    Edit: I would also love a knee crank—-these are relatively specific to this generation dial type and similarly aged toolmasters

    Here is a picture of the machine for reference (currently being used as a glorified table )

    Blackrainstorm what is your serial number? I have the same mill and would also like arbor supports, I have one factory support and one home made one. I would like a vertical head but I'm to cheep to pay $900 for one and they seem to be scares also.

    Yeah, I have kind of not bothered up on finding vertical heads as it seems cheaper to buy a whole vertical mill

    I hate to be blunt, but you are wanting to be a machinist, I think you have just found your first project, that's how you learn...Phil

    Yeah, I could make one, but it would be nice to have a factory one just for completeness. At least the Cincy ones can be replicated in an aesthetically pleasing form without casting. The K&T ones look a bit sad when not cast.

    Nothing gives more pleasure than doing a grate job building a part you need and cant buy, my 2cents. A good machined part and gray paint, it will look cinn..Phil

    Mine is 4A2U1V-7 I don't have the back lash compensator and for some reason the vibration dampener in the over arm is missing.
