I've been thinking while looking at the spindle of my Gorton 8D... Anybody had a spindle re-ground? The spindle is 1.43 " in diameter, down .150" from my mill/drill which uses R8. I'm wondering if there's enough meat to re-grind the spindle to accept R8 or??? Are there other collet tapers which are more common than Gorton's arrangement, that might be a better fit for adapting the Gorton spindle?
Any thoughts or recommendations for outfits that do this. I know Wells does it for their spindles....
