All I know is that this machine was probably made in the 1920's by Wb Knight machinery St. Louis missouri, I bought it from my mechanic and restored it for use building steam engines. I need to find out info on tooling or maybe a collet of some kind for holding end mills, because I have been using the drill chuck for milling operations for now.
