That is indeed a very nice mill. You got the over arm supports AND the vertical head

Is it a 40 taper? Did you get any other tooling with it?

No other tooling but the NMTB 40 taper TG-100 collet holder.. (Vertical head is 1.25 X main spindle speed. 1875 rpm max ) #50 in the horizontal It had the front arbor support too. It could be a super rigid setup if you needed it.

Very cool history on the Cincinnati mill company & the old man running with his instincts on Nazi Germany. You have to think his decision to tool up in advance before the war and procure the tooling/ processes to build big guns helped put the allies in the win column.

I’ve used a lot of different Cincinatti machines, and always found them to be solid, smooth running machines. That’s a nice machine, and should be a pleasure to use.

With a due respect, you sir suck.

I lust after a K&T horizontal with the universal table and gear box to power a dividing head.and the vertical milling head. One day soon....one day soon.

Mine is missing the powered dividing head. Heard they came standard with the Universal. I am guessing the Backlash Eliminator for climb milling on the Cincinnati is a step above most KT there. Anyway, just going to get a rotary table like you have, and call it good.

Main thing is get one that works, and does not need a bunch of work. Whatever brand you end up with. All my table feeds, and auto oilers work. Even the large coolant pump works fine.. That one is on the 3rd generated lag with it's three motor/ contactor setup, Really happy with my 15 hp rotary that I made for this project. Just bought a ebay box ,and drove over by Gaston Oregon to pick it up.. Voltages are really good, and starts things great.. I had a VFD on my last Mill, but single motor setup.. Just did not want to get into issues of running multi motors with one VFD. Can be done, but a dead simple 3 phase setup had more appeal to me.. I moved my table ,and centered it back to zero. What surprised me it's dead nuts on zero after tightening the four lock down screws.. Wonder how that happened? Made that way? I do need to get a correct collet to tram the head on the vertical.


By the way, I had to work pretty hard to get this setup.. The one guy I got the motor from paid cash for his cutter. the other guy was a straight up trade.. 4 new 16 trailer tires, and a rim, just to get my trailer down to get the mill.. They both love their new cutters, mill guy is a hobby type guy, and the other is full on bridge/ builder/slash machine repair type of guy.. He said the Thermal dynamics 60i has paid for itself 3 times over. that was in 2-3 weeks of straight gouging.. Super long arc in that unit. Reason I ditched mt Hypertherm 45XP. Just did not have enough guts to run like the Thermal does.. Paid $1355 for one, and about 750.00 for the other 2 machines. Many people bought these, and got a sweet deal too.. Everybody got a fair deal straight up, and are happy about it.. Only way to do business.. Mill was also in the shape he said it was..No power to test it..
