So now I have 3 index fixtures.   One index fixture is W12 collets    One is 3C collets, and now this one is 5C collets

Competition  :lolb:

Nothing wrong with collecting having the right dividing head to hand for each job  :)

Great score, and not much rust at all. What there is looks cosmetic only. Should clean up very nicely.

Bill

Might do that today...I've got a mess in the shop anyway that needs cleaning, to say nothing of the chips

I almost never find these deals.....so I jumped on it.    I also had the opportunity to save a Hardinge Cataract  Stark horizontal mill....and very early one.    I was successful!.....I found a new owner for her, so she's not going in the dumpster...it's a 5C machine with an arbor.   Spindle feels great!.    It felt good to save one from the scrapper....
