Hi All, While visiting a friend in Michigan I ran across this sitting out in the elements - A little Burke #0 that needs some attention. The price was right (free!), so I loaded it into the truck and it came home with me. Now, Burke purists may want to wander elsewhere. When I saw this machine, I thought, 'Hey, that'd make a dandy starting point for a Tool and Cutter grinder. ' I'm in the process of cleaning it up enough that I can re-assemble it and check how clapped out it is. If it isn't too bad, I'll tear it back down and strip-prime-paint everything that needs it. The phosphor bronze spindle bearings will get pressed out, and I'll machine sleeves to allow me to fix Timken tapered roller bearings to a new spindle. The spindle I'll most likely make with a 3/4x16 nose, the same as a Taig spindle. Primarily because I have a lot of Taig tooling already. More pics to come as the project progresses, but it won't be a quick project. Thanks!
