I have enjoyed my Clausing rebuilt 8520 for a number of years now but the restricted spindle to table height has become more of a problem as my work requirement continues to expand. Has anyone in the group made a 4" riser for the earlier machines? It would be helpful to have dimensions as I would like to use the mill to machine the spacer prior to breaking it down . I've attached a photo of my mill which is S/N 555.

Doubleboost on YouTube , built a 9" riser on his little mill and I tell ya he works his machines . His build is on his playlist. I've watched it several times , my enco mill is just like his I think was a jet of the same machine. In fact just recently he bought a vfd and motor deal that's complete.
I only hope I can get well enough to work on mine. I'm losing hope .

Hey that triple nickel is a good looking machine! I see it still has the drivebelt cover, could I ask for a couple pics of it up close / closer? TIA.

Thanks Terry for re-posting Bill Gruby's thread on the column spacer. With this information I get started on the project.
