Basic mill collet help... Schaubling collets?

Bonjour everybody.

I've bought myself a lovely and rare little emco FB2 mentor mill, it came with nothing, bar a chuck for a milling tool.

The chuck says: Schaubling 161-120 on it. There's less than no information available to me on the interscrote, so I am asking if anybody can shed any light on whether or not this chuck can take ER type collets, or if Schaubling used there own design?

Also, anybody know what size t-slots I need? my slots in the bed measure 15mm wide bottoms, 10mm wide top and a 10ishmm height? Does that ring bells in imperial measurements as a standard size t-slot?

Thanks,

Ed

Here's a couple of pictures of the chuck:

Haha!! No way! My dad was bidding for me as I was away, he's a regular down there. He mentioned there was some pillar drills up for grabs, couldn't believe it when he sent a picture of that emco!

I had a feeling they would have been! Please don't say you bought them and now want 546 for them? :p

Looking at this...

Schaublin 161-120 ER25 Edelstaal Collet Chuck Holder MT2 with 11 Collets

You may have ER25 collets, but you could always take it out the holder and take a pic so we can see for sure.





Rotary build coming soon...

No they really where spread out. And it would have took the 546 to buy all the boxes, its why I didn't go higher. That and I didn't bring the trailer. I was kicking my self as it was a bargain at half eBay. (where is the shaking fist simile).

The lathe was a bargain at half eBay as well but I bought a Boxford a couple of weeks ago.

I bid on the drill but that fetched double eBay.

Yeah I thought as much. Haha!! How much do these mills normally fetch? haven't seen another emco available.

The lathe looked very nice in the picture, it had a milling attachment too?

The lathe was perfect, I guess he had bought it from new and would have been 4500 ish. A super 7 with gear box would fetch 1400~1800 on ebay. The Rodney miller sells for 450~500 on ebay. Milling slide over 100 and the cabinet was stuffed.

I dropped out at a grand as I didn't have the need or the transport and I think it went for just over 1200.

I went and had a look at the emco Friday afternoon. I've seen a couple of similar ones sell for 500~600 and went to 290 + commission.

The item I really wanted was the spot welder and the Alpine drill press.

I didn't get a thing.....and the only cash I spent was a cup of tea

Ouch!! I know myfords always fetch good money, it certainly was a nice spec. I just bought a drummond m type not so long ago though so like you, didn't really have the need.

hajj fair enough, I guess it was you that we were bidding against right at the end? Because we didn't pay a lot more i don't think.

Ohhh didn't know there was a spot welder there!! Really wishing I has gone on Friday after work, I was only round the corner from the auction but totally forgot!

Right, I have removed the chuck and collet this evening and taken pictures of the collet itself to see if anybody can identify it.

I hope it's an ER collet, would make things nice and simple then!!
