I have recently received a Moore #3 jig bore. It is in excellent condition. Manny years ago I used a Moore jig grinder but never a bore. We got no tooling with this machine so that is an issue. I'm looking for suggestions about utilizing this machine. My question seems to be: Is this used just for precise hole location and size or are there other uses for it.
Accuracy on this machine is amazing and it is massive.
Thanks for any input .

What style ways does it have, dovetail or inverted Vee?
If the latter, light milling only.
Probably has no quill lock either.

We have a Moore jig bore and two jig grinders where I am employed. Beautiful machines. We really only use the jig bore for precision measurement, a non-digital CMM, if you will... but to my knowledge, the purpose of either is to make accurately-placed, high-precision holes. I would not abuse one by milling with it.

Precision layout and boring of holes.
