Hi All; It is amazing to me that there is such a paucity of information about the United States Machine Tool Company out there. Paucity might be an understatement. For a company founded in 1915 and running as a stand alone entity until 1948 (Burke merger), there is simply "NOTHING" out there. Bizarre! I'll do my part to add what little I can. I own USMT Model V2 #1185. From what I can infer by what little I have seen out there, the V2 is the smaller lighter brother to the V series. 36" bed. Brown & Sharpe #9 spindle taper. 1 horse motor. The perfect mill for light fast prototype work, or the home shop enthusiast, particularly when little space is available. From what little I know about machines in general, it seems to be a very nice quality machine. It would be great if everyone (anyone?) who had one of these would post as well. I have only seen one or two others out there on the web. One was #1115. I would very much like to know what year my machine was built. It looks fairly modern in style compared to some of the V series, leading me to suspect that the V2 series came into being somewhere beyond the 1930s, and yet is not so modern as to have such touches as offset X/Y feed shafts. Hopefully this might generate some flow of info from previously disparate sources thought to be lost out there in the old machine wilderness! IF YOU HAVE ANY INFO., PLEASE POST FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL OF US WHO OWN THESE FORGOTTEN MACHINES! Take this link to see more pics of my machine. www.redlinerennsport.homestead.com/Machines.html Thanks for looking, and happy chip making!
