Above: No. 3 right-angle attachment for the Model J Head. This heavy-duty 4 to 3 reduction unit was very well made with hardened and lapped spiral-bevel gears and the hollow spindle, designed to accept standard R-8 tooling,  running in pre-loaded ball bearings. The attachment is shown in combination with the Auxiliary Arbor Support, a device that greatly improved its performance when used for horizontal milling. The collet capacity range was 1/8" to 3/4".
