My milling machine takes International 30 tooling.  I have managed to collect most tooling I want except a collet chuck which I also want for my lathe. I want collets that will fit both lathe and milling machine.  Some of the ebay stuff has too much runout.  Ideally ER32 would be good.

Sadly, my old Bridgeport clunker only takes native R8 tooling. Easy to fine ISO40 to R8, but the other way round isn't exactly a sensible idea.  If I ever have to rebuild the spindle and quill, I might convert to ISO40.

I just spotted the Dean Smith and Grace 1306 lathe in that auction.  Now I am sad because I don't quite have the floor space. It would mean knocking an internal blockwork wall down. If it goes for less than £1k, I'm going to kick myself for months. <> Fancy putting that through Palletforce?

That reminds me Neil,  will your mill take an ISO40 taper?   We sold our Haas VF2 years ago, but I occasionally see lumps of tooling lurking in long forgotten boxes.
