OK all

Has any one out there with a chester v20 looked to see if your is a way to do an R8 spindle conversion. I know all the grizzly g0704 came with an R8 . im wondering if i buy all the parts if they would fit.

Any one looked at it ?

I have considered to change the nose on my mill from MC3 to ER32 or even ER40,but felt to oldAnother Tram .

Looking at the Chester website they don't supply an R8 version. R8 collets are considerably bigger than MT2 so it's quite likely the spindle will be smaller for the latter. though I favour R8 I suspect you wouldn't find the conversion easy.

If the lower taper roller bearing is as on the Grizzly 0704 it is 62 mm outside diameter.This is the same as most minilathes and I have used a lot of time and some money to scheme a ER40 version.
