Vernon. Very much the same size, style, etc. Whichever you get, make sure you get the collets.

I've seen some really nice small Hauser jig borers.

Theyre surprisingly common here. Here's an older one that popped up on a PM a few days ago. Not sure the ones Ive seen fit everyone's definition of small, but definitely a great machine.

A late friend of mine had a jig borer made by Fairbanks - Morse. It was a very old flat belt driven machine, a little smaller than a Bridgeport. Regards David Powell.

These are small. As an indication, the rotary table is 8" diameter. Wolf Jahn/BCA/Excel/Sigma Jones :- http://www.lathes.co.uk/bca/index.html

I have an ex WW2 one inherited from my father waiting for rebuild.
