Anybody know where I can get a motorised workhead.

I have that same grinder! I've found that it's very hard to find any information on it at all, so it's great that you have all that stuff coming with it. I have almost zero accessories for mine and I'm drooling over that pile of stuff that's coming with yours.

Good haul man!

Copy the manuals for me! hehe.

WOW, an ARSE grinder :D Wonder if that ever occurred to the designers

congrats, looks very well accessorized. Is that one the brands Elliot made (Victoria mills, Elliot Mills, Invicta shapers etc)? Not sure why but they branded different categories of machines with a different

Cincinnati T&CG just has a large pulley that you fit to the regular workhead and a small motor that mounts on top. If you really wanted to go to town, fit the motor with a VFD.

Phil,
Good find and a useful machine. Good eyesight (or large magnifying glass) needed to read the head, tilt and swivel graduations. If a scan of the operating manual becomes available I would also like to put my hand up.

Looks like a very good buy with all the accessories.

Now what did you pay for here?

Allan.

I have the same problem with my grinders (T&C and Universal).

I have given away using the scales/indexes as they are not only hard to read but are not accurately zero-ed.

I use a digital protractor-cum-bevel guage (accurate to 0.1*) and a bevel guage and angle blocks as required:

1500 EUR plus vat at an outrageous 25%.

The variable is good, the constant is bad.
But then, the constant is ... constant. :)


Nick, with a constant of 19%
