For Sale: a pair of Swiss Hauser high-precision vertical/horizontal milling machines These machines, originally fitted with lever-operated slides, have undergone a beautifully engineered conversion to screw-feed with digital readouts and micrometer stops by John Stevens (he makes the Stevens precision millers). Lever feed on the vertical carriage is left intact for slotting or drilling operations. Two opposed five-step pulleys give a very wide range of speeds from a 1-phase 1/4 H.P. motor (a number of further speed variations are also possible). Both millers can be used in either vertical or horizontal mode and each has a removable rotary table (the originals were fixed). Drive comes from Pultra Multi-speed Mardrive stand with a 1-phase 1/4 h.p. motor complete with a take-off drive on a moveable platform that enables the mounting of other machine such as a watchmaker's lathe or drill (the photographs shows such an example). Extras include: Individually switched LED lighting system for each machine; a number of collets including two 10 mm with 6 mm inserts; two 10 mm with 1/4" inserts, two 10 mm blanks and a 7 mm expandable  to take 6 mm and 1/4" throwaway cutters. A small drilling chuck and an ER 11 collet holder on a 10 mm collet. The original lever feeds and original non-removable rotary tables with associated nuts and bolts are also included.
