I have a Armor milling machine model JM. It is a vertical and Horizontal
machine. I checked the place in the UK, but they only had different models.
This company was in Burbank CA, an Aircraft Machinery Company. Any help is
very very much appreciated. If I can't find any info on it, I will
sell/trade it, and buy a small Chinese mill drill ......Peter in Sacramento,
Honestly too complicated, and actually bigger then I wanted to be, even
though it is small by milling machine standards (still a bench type).. Are
you in CA? I thought I emailed pictures to a Gunner before. I could send
them pictures to you if you like......Peter
Hello Wayne....My biggest question in the spindle thread, it is like an
Atlas lathe 1 1/2 x 8 thread......I just like to know what they used for a
collet closer, and maybe what individual collets they used.....Best
I would like to send you some pictures if you like, it is probably better to
look at what I mean..
Send them on.
As for the thread question. Well that leads me to believe that I may
not be much help. It must be a different mill from the one I used.
Ours definitely didn't have a thread on the spindle. It took B&S #7
mill holders (I think that's the right size might of been a #5).

Hello Wayne...thanks for the interesting info. I'm not actually sure of the
inside taper, it holds MT#2 pieces quite nicely. Just recently I noticed
some copper wrapped on the inside of the arbor. Nice and tight, so I wonder
what is under it. I wonder what size taper it really is, or if the arbor has
a leak. I may have mixed up some words here, Arbor spindle etc, please
forgive me for that, my brain is working only on one side.....Grandpa
