    I just purchase a Chandler Duplex boring and facing head (model D) off EBay. All the machinist websites I've searched have reference to the manual on Scribd.com but Scribd no longer has the manual available.

    Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the manual?

    Thanks!

    I have a copy of the catalog/manual that I'll be glad to provide. Let me find it and I'll post it here on this site for members here to download. I'll let you know when I get it loaded. I also have a few N.O.S. parts for these heads too if needed. Ken

    Is this a boring head that changes diameter when it is held by a bar?

    I believe that Criterion makes a similar product, have never used one but the setup looks difficult at best.

    Yeah, you can grab the knurled ring on top of the boring head by hand or attach a torque arm to it. The operation of the Chandler head is a little bit different from others out there, but once you get the hang of it, it's easy to operate. It's not made to take any heavy cuts with it. Never designed to use with carbide insert tooling. Brazed tipped tools ok.

    Thanks Ken! This will also be a nice addition to the Hobby Machinist website for future Chandler owners. Thanks again, Bob

    It looks like Ken's pdf was a catalog brochure and not the actual instructions. It did have some instructions but there is obviously a more thorough instruction book out there. If anyone knows where to get a copy please let me know. Again, thanks Ken for your help.

    Ok, I contacted leadscrew1 on EBay that currently has a Chandler for sale. Warren was gracious enough to take photos of the instructions for us. He has a lot of tools and machines for sale and said to contact him if you’re looking for something specific. He has 100% positive EBay feedback from 3306 people so you know you can trust his products.

    Hey Ken, maybe you could post the PDF to the same place as your PDF for future reference...

    I'll try. If not maybe we can get him to send it in a PDF to one of out email addresses.

    I too, have bought many things from Warren over the years on eBay. He will help you with your purchase on shipping too. And any reasonable offer made he will generally accept it too. Yeah, I notice he had one for sale. I have three of them, actually four of them, my brother has one of my Chandler boring heads at his shop. I think four is enough!

    Thanks for posting.

    Ken

    Dul, you have it in a pdf file. I should have opened it first. I'll post it in the download files shortly

    I have a "The Precision Universal Tool" automatic boring and facing head. It look very similar to the Chandler Duplex and I tried to upload the instructions/manual to the download section but keep getting an error. The manual has some examples of how to perform various operations using the facing head that may be duplicated on the Chandler Duplex.

    Now when I return to the download section it brings up the title etc and still wont accept the PDF upload. Any help? uploaded the file here if anyone is interested

    Reeltor,

    Thanks Ken,
    I don't know if my issue uploading to the download section is User Error on my part, a compatibility issue with my systems or what???
