  • Just bought a tapping head, any info?

    Hey guys! I hope I didn't screw up here. It was pretty shiny so I had to have it.
    It's a "BIG Accu" #412. Paid $99 USD for it. Looks to be in good shape and the guy says it works fine. He ripped me on the shipping...guess he was a bit pissed cuz nobody else bid on it, but it's still a pretty good deal I guess. Ha...That's if they're any good or if it isn't worn out.
    Anyone know anything about these? Thanks!

      Russ,

      Looks like my TapMatic. When it arrives you should be able to track down the manufacturer.

      All the ones I've rebuilt are pretty much the same. Clutch pack at the top, planetary gearing at the bottom. Make sure to build a torque arm to mount to the table or quill, you don't want to try to hold on!

        This is the pic that was on fleabay

        I did a google search on this and can't find too much info.
        BIG is now BIG Kaiser Tooling but this is a renamed company or something. Head was made by LSU or something like that.
        weird...ya made me sick . This is about the best deal I've seen up here in months.
        The more common ones go for $250 and up unless I've missed one.

        BTW...The guy was a true source of info...asked him what taper the shank was..."Ummm...5/8" I think"
