View Full Version : 1955 Cincinnati Toolmaster 1B spindle taper

Anyone have any idea what taper is on this mill? I dont have any tooling for this mill. Also do you think the knee handle from a bridgeport will fit?, and if so does anyone have an extra to sell?

good morning.

i have a 1959 toolmaster and it uses 'craley' collets. they are unique to cincinnati and very expensive.

i have a copy of the manual and can scan the dimensions of he spindle and email if that would help.

email me if this would help billr@tvec.net

toolmasters are good machines. rigid and heavy. lots more so than a bridgeport.

good luck.

Thanks Bill. I found that they are the same as Monoset collets or 3CH. Can you measure one of your collets and give me the dimensions? ie, overall length, diameter at key pts, etc.

Thanks. Ken
