Hi everyone, I might be getting the opportunity to purchase a Boxford 190VMC, unfortunately it comes with absolutely no tooling whatsoever. Now I believe the spindle taper is BT20 (hopefully somebody can confirm this for me), does anybody know where suitable tooling is available from as I don't seem to be able to find any?
If it looks right it probably is right. Keep on making swarf everyone. Regards Paul.
I think you need to be 100% sure what spindle tooling you need.
There are Chinese BT20 ER16 tool holders available on eBay.com. Axminster amongst others sell small cnc mills with automatic tool changers although they are iso20. And for deeper pockets I expect the high end tool makers supply them.
