          If it were new the broach set alone would be $300+.
          Good deal.

              It's a good deal - and nice "patina" on the parts, I wonder - how many of you own "pull broaches"? I do like the idea of pulling verses pushing as pulling is self aligning and pushing try's to go "haywire" and will even "snake" the broach under exceeding pressures... very critical to be dead on the money when pushing...

                That's a decent price, the drills that size are well over $100 each if bought new.

                The broaches are a money pit, since now you need to buy a bigger press to push them Better send them here for proper disposal.

                  I really don’t want to broach the subject.

                      Yeah, I looked on ebay to see what the used big drill bits were priced at. They ranged from $35 to $75 and the full broach set was in the $400 to $600 range. I'm not sure what it takes to push a 5/8" broach through mild steel but I'm hoping 75 ton will do it since that's all I have. But to date I've never had to broach larger than 3/8". The drill bits however are another story. I think the rule of thumb is roughly 3 hp to drill a 1 1/2" hole in mild steel and my only working drill press is 1 hp. That being said I do have a damaged deluxe 5 hp Clausing with all the bells and whistles that showed up on my doorstep in a box. I guess now I'll have to take the time to repair it.

                        ... It might be worth noting that my big 10HP Springfield has an MT4 tailstock.

                            I hope I'm not over stepping here but for those you you that are interested in some MT4 and MT5 drills send me a message
                            I have acquired some in a sale about a year ago and am looking to part with the MT4 and MT5
                            Have made a word format on sizes and condition
                            sorry if I over stepped here

                              And a TOS 1440 has an MT5.

                              Old lathes had too small of tapers. New lathes are arguably too large, but I appreciate it.
