And now for the tooling that came with the Van Norman...
The rotary table--I mentioned in yesterday's post. A boring head--I forget the name but was made in Detroit. A vise with "No. 22" on it but no name. Some endmills and a bunch of collets. Some of the collets are Van Norman "C" while others are Hardinge "5V", which are equivalent.

Saturday morning I went back to pay for and pick up a couple of items. An older Wells model 58B bandsaw with a newer GE motor and a 10 inch, 12 amp delta bench grinder. $115 for the pair.

The deceased man's buddy said the Delta was a $400 grinder a few years ago and it hasn't been used much. I'd say it weighs 70 lbs or so as a rough guess. The Wells is definitely older than my early 80's version, but I'm not quite sure how old.. Any ideas?

The saw looks similar to mine, but a little newer. If i remember correctly, mine was built around 1965. Your's looks like maybe late 60's early 70's maybe.

I still want a Van Norman mill though the argument is still for a Bridgeport..

Really great deals and sounds like it's been a good transaction..

Congrats..

Yes the quill is a very useful tool on a bridgeport. I would like one also, or maybe a Wells-Index. It will have to be a deal though.

We picked up the Van Norman yesterday. Really uneventful considering FIL is good with the skid steer and the deceased previous owner's friend is a retired millwright. We picked up most of the panels for the walk-in cooler also and will have to get the rest next weekend.

He threw in a bunch of brazing rod and a few sticks of aluminum tig rod. Quite a few lbs all told.

The last pic is what I think may be a drill sharpening attachment. I used one a long time ago that was somewhat similar. Any better ideas as to what it is?

I think you're right but whatever it is, i have a couple of pieces of one that I must have picked up at a yard sale several years ago.

Thanks Glenn. It's on concrete inside with some oil on it. I'm going to Fluid Film it down for now to keep the rust away. I get done with my engineering degree in May so I'll be able to mess with it and my LeBlond then.
