    I recently bought a surface grinder spindle that the previous owner (machine shop) mounted to a turret lathe for a particular grinding operation that they did frequently - shop owner mentioned what they used it for but the answer was a bit over my head and I only cared to know that the spindle was working correctly. Maybe the commercial part the OP mentioned/showed the image from was for a similar use. Hopefully my grinder spindle image will load (I can see it in preview)

        I would think that the spindle speed would be an indicator of the intended use. It appears to be a direct drive from the motor shaft so I wonder what the rated RPM would be.

        And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
        You will find that it has discrete steps.

          I could be wrong, but it appears to have a vernier dial on it. If so, it can be set to a fraction of a degree easily. Whatever application it was purposed for, it needed to have great accuracy in its angle adjustment. Good for tapers- whether you're grinding them, or boring them using a specialty rotating boring tool.

          Sure does seem like it would be good for regrinding morse tapers in situ.

          I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

              I located a new unit the same as the one I showed a picture of in the original post. The new one sells for just under 3000 Euros. It is made to mount on a grinder.
