Evening All, Well the TOS is in the garage :) had to set the head all the way over (much head scratching until I spotted the dowel holding it in position...) but then there was 2" clearance thro the door :) Now Im a bit confused about Tapers, The rather wonderful, typed manual states: Spindle taper Int.Std No 40. No problem I thought, lets look for some tooling.... Arrgh, many many different '40' types... Am I right in thinking that essentially all types (BT, DIN, ISO, etc) will fit, or do I have to be a bit careful? I notice that some seem to have a button on the end, I assume for CNC auto changers, does it unscrew? I have a drawbar in the mill, tho Ive no idea what the thread is, I assume there is a std for it...
Do Clarkson chucks only hold the threaded milling cutters? whats the general opinion of clarkson vs er chucks? I can see that I could use an er for drilling to, but I suppose I should by a drill chuck for that really.
one other thing, It has a nasty coolant tank, any tips for emptying / cleaning it?
Ive just about got the lathe sussed, but I think Im back the the start with this mill.
