  • Hardinge Spindle Height

    Can I ask a favor of anyone who has a DV-59 or DSM-59? What's the height from the top of the dovetail to the spindle centerline? I'm pondering adapting a Hardinge turret to another machine, but would like to know if I need to add or remove material (and if so, how much) before I drop the money on the turret.

    TIA

    Is this a DV59 ? I am not familiar with machine model numbers.
    If so I can measure it tomorrow.

      Technically that's a DSM-59 since it has a turret (DV-59 had a tailstock and cross slide), but that's exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks.

        You want a dimension from the flat top of the ways to the spindle centerline I take it.
        I will measure it tomorrow.

            I will call it somewhere between 4 7/16" and 4 1/2"
            Bear in mind that this machine is over 60 years old (-:

              Thanks a lot Bented . The spec on a DV-59 says it's got a 9" swing, so I'd call it 4 1/2". I just wasn't sure if they had left some wiggle room there or if it was bang on 9".

                Do not rely on, as hobbyists like to say "The Spec's", this will bite you on the ass at some point.
