    Looking for a Deckel FP1 Horizontal Arbor

    Taper Confusion.... What tapers are compatible with my FP1 MK4 horizontal spindle? Changing / fabricating a draw bar is not a problem, it's finding tools that match up with the MK4 taper. There are so many designations (Mt4, BT40, Cat40, NMTB etc.) something more compatible and available has...

    Looking for a Deckel FP1 Horizontal Arbor

    I saw that Ross. I got the end mill holder and an easily modified arbor off FleaBay for just over $100 combined. Cut the arbor to the right length and turn the end to 17mm and I'm good to go.

    Looking for a Deckel FP1 Horizontal Arbor

    Most of my cutters / blades are 1" and I cannot find a 1" arbor. Looks like I'll need to create one using a 1" end mill holder and a modified arbor shaft. Thanks for all your help.

    Looking for a Deckel FP1 Horizontal Arbor

    Thanks for all the good ideas! I'm communicating with Singer and they have a 27mm arbor in stock (no 1" available). Am I delusional to think I could use a reamer on my extensive collection of 25mm cutters / blades to allow them to be used on a 27mm arbor?

    Looking for a Deckel FP1 Horizontal Arbor

    I found this on Ebay and wondered if I could just shorten it and make it work. I'd need to cut it, rethread it and turn the end to diameter. Could be tough machining but I can't find an original one anywhere...

    Looking for a Deckel FP1 Horizontal Arbor

    Thanks for the replies. My machine is a 40 taper. The total length is only about 12" with a 17mm pilot. I'd be looking for 1" or 7/8" diameter as that's what most of my blades / cutters are. Here's a link to the one I tried to get from RC Machine...

    Looking for a Deckel FP1 Horizontal Arbor

    I recently purchased a 1965 Deckel FP1. Unfortunately it did not come with a horizontal arbor (it came with the overarm support but not the arbor). Does anyone have one they'd be willing to part with, or know a US distributor that would sell one. I tried ordering one from RC machine in...

    Mystery Lathe Tools

    Ok... While I admit I'm a Newbie, I at least thought I could identify different tools. I just purchased a 1970 Hardinge HLV-H with a ton of tooling from a woman whose husband had recently passed. Among the tooling are these two things, What are they? The first one looks to be some sort of...

    Bridgeport Milling Table Problem

    I just picked up a 1980 Bridgeport series 1 2J mill at an auction. The machine is in good shape, but I hope I didn't damage it moving it into my shop. To get in the door I had to extend the table all the way to the left and spin the machine around the door frame to maneuver it in. I LIGHTLY...
