It needs a lot of work, but they are fairly easy to work on.
The interesting thing about this one is....its got a Gorton Spring
Collet holder sticking out of the spindle.
Spindle is stuck all the way up, so that needs to be addressed, but I
was out in the not well lit back 40, and pulled the draw bolt..and a
Gorton Spring collet fell out of the holder...which Ive never seen
before. I dont know if thats the primary tool holder..or its an adapter
stuck in the (unknown) spindle. If anything..it may be a B&S spindle
nose..but..getting it out is going to be "interesting"
I checked the Gorton website
But couldnt find any reference to a J-22 having a spring collet spindle
nose. Photos to follow tommorow when its light.
Anyone have any idea if such a beasty was built, with a Gorton Spring
Collet spindle nose? It "looks" like an adapter sticking out of the
ram..but I cant find any sort of release for the adapter.
The machine is pretty rough...been outside for a while....
Oh..I also got a 30 ton Carolina press. Shrug
