    Just picked up a horizontal Mill, what kind is it?

    Ok, so I removed the drawbar, which just had a threaded part on it. I took a pic of the hole I pulled the drawbar from (back of machine), the drawbar itself, and the collet chuck that is still in there because I can’t quite get it out yet. Man I’m getting confused. In the last 3 responses from...

    Just picked up a horizontal Mill, what kind is it?

    Oh, and the “hole” that holds the end mill, is a taper, like a Morse taper or something. Here’s a pic. Yes, I measured it by putting the calipers in it the right way, they’re just up like that for showing the numbers:) Thoughts? Just get a collet holder and be done with it or what?

    Just picked up a horizontal Mill, what kind is it?

    Upon re-reading (on my phone, and I’m near blind), I see that you answered any question I needed so my response was a little redundant. Thank you. Now if we can figure out what the hell this machine is….. I’m still searching daily. Has a lot of “Atlas” attributes, but it’s not. Who knows...

    Just picked up a horizontal Mill, what kind is it?

    Yes. I just posted a response to another guy showing exactly what you just said. And yes, in the part where you put the end mill (with the chuck around it) does have what looks to be maybe a Jacob’s taper or Morse taper or whatever they’re called (low IQ when it comes to milling) interesting ...

    Just picked up a horizontal Mill, what kind is it?

    Well in case it wasn’t apparent, I know very little about mills in general, so please forgive my ignorance. The “draw bar, I imagine is what’s going through the pulley’s essentially holding the end mill in the end. Yes, there is a big wheel opposite the milling end or “chuck”, this wheel has...

    Just picked up a horizontal Mill, what kind is it?

    Isn’t this the antiques section? I posted this under antique machinery…? I think I just posted again in the same section ? lol, that’s still the main source of pollution… I’m sorry, cow farts have taken the lead:)

    Just picked up a horizontal Mill, what kind is it?

    Hey guys sorry I took so long to respond. I’m loving this mill but still have no idea what it is, and I have googled till my fingers were tired.. it seems to be a ghost.? Also, I am trying to find some more collets for it, as I only intend on using it with end mills. But the collet is like no...

    Just picked up a horizontal Mill, what kind is it?

    I’ve never heard of a lineshaft machine. Yea this arbor thing on top has a little point on it. Initially I thought this thing was a rotor lathe, but it seems to be a horizontal mill, has all the extra fly cutters and keyway cuttters.?

    Just picked up a horizontal Mill, what kind is it?

    Hey all! Like i said in header, I picked up this horizontal Mill… which I didn’t even know that was a thing. It weighs easily 400 lbs, but I cannot for the life of me figure out what brand it is? It’s obviously old, and it has “Gits” oil cups on it. The switch says Appleton , but that’s just...

    Noob can’t figure out how to wire motor...

    Will do. I’m going to scour the area for a machinist that knows these old things and try to get him over here and pick his brain. I feel like I would learn more that way. When I read any of the jargon you guys use I go cross eyed. For now I would just settle for it running and I can teach myself...

    Noob can’t figure out how to wire motor...

    Ready to scream. Ok, I will take the motor and have it looked at, but what would help a lot more is someone to come by and give me a crash course on how to use this thing. Where would you find something /someone like that? I’ve been a carpenter for 20 years, but love metal. I would really like...

    Sorry I have taken so long to get back. THANK YOU for your diagnosis! This is what I wanted to hear/see was some answers. Only supposed to have two or three wires huh? That’s crazy, these look like they are factory, being numbered consecutive and all? Here’s a funny thing,I hooked it up...
