    Can also be used for involute gear cutters, very helpful for making up replacement gears.

    Or, very likely, slitting saws.

    Slitting saw arbours are generally much shorter, really just a stub arbour with a cap held on with a central screw. This is a milling cutter arbour but can obviously be used for slitting saws.

    Depends on how big your slitting saws are and how far down on a job the cut is. Traditional stub arbors for slitting saws are too short!

    Thanks Jord

    Finally got the mill so as not to throw hot chips everywhere, I was skip dipping a while back, not some thing i normally do but on this occasion I couldn't resist pulled out approx 30 galvanized sheets 2-3mm thick 10 foot by 2 foot wide brand new I think they were origianlly for making electrical switch gear cupboards, anyway back to the posting, I made a bottom and rear shelf out of one of the sheets today whilst making some T nuts, no mess and no burns. woop woop

    I presume you have found that there is a lot of information including 2HL parts and operators manuals here?:
    http://www.vintagemachinery.org/mfgIndex/detail.aspx?id=2098&tab=3

    I have a K&T 2D from the 1960’s, ex Oxford University. But don’t tell Pressbrake, as I think he was going to buy it. It’s a fantastic machine, extremely rigid and with a very useful rotary head.

    If Pressbrake really is worried about his K&T mill going to the scrap yard, I’m happy for him to write me into his will.
