    We have a twin head drill, one is Morse taper fittings, but I don't know what the second type is?? Can it be converted??
    It looks like a ball lock type thing.
    Or is a part just missing from it?

    Help appreciated

    Thanks 500e, So from what I can tell (& memory, the drill is 400 miles away at my parents) this may be the big end of the herbert Quick change system & I need some of the adapters to make use of it.

    I think

    Use the old Herbert's a few times only ever seen this on the 4 and 6 spindles. Someone said it was a way of changing from drill to tap without stopping the machine.

    Not a great picture, but looks like some kind of quick release. Knock it out of the quill and use it as a MT 2 or 3 spindle i'd I imagine.

    I had a Herbert drill in my old workshop, it doubled as a tapping machine & had an auto reversing switch on it, it had a similar quick change quill on it, i was lucky it had a morse taper adapter & chuck.
    Cost me 15 quid! Only three quarter hp, but in bottom gear the spindle only did 56 rpm so at the chuck it was seriously powerful. Great bits of kit.

    We have the Herbert 4 head one at work (like the picture but speed select is mounted on the side of the head not the front) but it has the same system as described in opening post (I recognised it before I'd scrolled down to see any mention of Herbert!).
    I'll take some pics in the basket of bits we have and see if that helps you track down the part you need if that helps?
