    Hi, Thanks- Not sure if it would be usable for the mill (still learning! lol)but let me know what you might want for it...

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Thanks- Now I get to put the lathe to work! (one of my happy things!)
    Have to print out the plans at work Monday. Looks like Outside dia(other than the collar)is 1", and I am pretty sure I have some 1" stock close at hand- but I'd have to figure a collar. Or use the excuse to visit the metal shop...

    Scott

    PS- Do you happen to have a black & white or blueprint copy? Sadly, I am having a bit of trouble with the colors, and when I try to zoom in, it gets too blurry... Thanks!

    Two different B&S 9 tapers in MHB - probably need to concentrate on the Milling Machine version

    Standard Tapers

    Have fun

    "I got mine" All of the above -collets included - and a lot more.

    But the Burke is only one of three #9 B&S here, the much bigger Quartet's vertical head uses it and the tiny Ellis indexer/DH as well.

    My advice?

    Grab every scrap of #9 B&S as crosses your radar. There's a lot of it still out there, but it is never as handy as a trip to Big Box when you are in need.

    You aren't likely to get "stuck' with it, either. Lot of us running it as wouldn't go near an Are-Ate with a latex-bagged-and-buttered-bargepole.

    B&S # 9 has right about DOUBLE the grip and power-transfer capacity as Are-Ate.
    Most especially in Weldon-style side-lock holders where the # 9 has stiffer support than an Are Ate solid. Collets in a mill are for the Bird's Ports anyway.

    B&S #9 just plain kicks an Are-Ate BirdPort's ass so high up between the shoulder blades it can draw government disability.

    B&S # 7 is the one comparable to Are-Ate or MT #2.

    #9 is a workhorse.

    Just do NOT pull-tight into a hot spindle. Might stay there for a long while! VERY long while!

    Doesn't LOOK all that diffrent from MT, but MT's taper was chosen to reliably eject fron axial loading in a DRILLPRESS, wants to walk right out under milling-cutter side loads and flute impacts, does so unless retention wedge keyed (see hor-bore) or tight drawbar-ed.

    B&S taper was chosen to near-as-dammit self-lock and resist milling side loads, even with not a lot of drawbar help. Has done exactly that and rather well, since the 1800's.
