The toolmasters are excellent machines but can
be tricky to get parts for, especially the
pre- 1965 models( 1-b 1-c h-v) which use oddball
collets -'A' type and brown+sharpe taper etc...
the later 1-d(variable) and 1-e(step pulley) have standard 40 taper spindles and power quill feed.
there was a mid 70's model with a square head
and bigger table but I've never seen one in person.
I have a 1-d and I like it much better
than a bridgeport. the short,stout base
makes for rigid setups and the huge 40nt quill
can really take a cut. i think i may have a couple of collets for the 1-b lying around somewhere.
hope this helps.
