No tool holder, but you have the vise. They're also proud of them on the Bay!!
A tool holder should be a doable project for you!!
Sure is a nice looking shaper though.

Jack, I barely fought off the 7B urge about 6 months ago, don't get me started again.

I need to call my sponsor.

Mack,

I'd be very interested in seeing some more pictures of the Burke mill, I have an Atlas MFC bench mill, from what I can see from your posted picture, the Burke seems to be both bigger and stouter than the Atlas.

I met a machinist last month who has a nice, clean-looking little shaper for sale. I can't remember the manufacturer, didn't pay a lot of attention because I wasn't really interested.
I think he said it's a 7 inch.
He said it's rebuilt & ready to go for $1000.

If anybody's interested I could stop by & take pictures of it.

Jack,
I took a few more pics of the burke but only got 1 good one before the battery croaked. I think your atlas might be just a tad bigger and have a little more iron. The Burke has a 16"x3" table with about 10" in X and 7" in Y. The spindle is a B&S #7 with a 7/8" arbor. The original motors on these had a 2-speed gearbox that was part of the front end bell of the motor, unfortunatly I didn't get a motor with this mill so it will get a 3ph motor with a VFD.

I had the opportunity to buy a pristine Burke (original motor) with the vertical head attachment and I passed on it due to lack of funds and I have been kicking myself in the azz ever since. I looked at this one at a used machinery dealer that I haunt for several months before the I could finally get the guy to move a little on the price. And there it sits in the corner of the shop waiting for me to get the time to give it a good going over (and find more tooling for it).
