Who can tell me anything about this machine? Just picked it up today. 220V. I have a bunch of cutters for the bar on the top, but missing a few pieces. I have no other tooling except for one end mill. Its a 1/2 in shank. Are those a standard tool bit?

I have one very similar to it- does it have a nameplate anywhere on it? Mine is an M-20 I think. 1/2" is indeed a standard size for endmills.

Always nice to find another Diamond mill owner- I bought mine last year. It has a motorized vertical head which isn't shown in the picture.
A nice compact and rigid little machine. I'd like to see more pictures of yours-

There should be a drawbar with a square drive end on the rear of the spindle; loosen it and tap on the end with a brass hammer or similar tool. Use some penetrating oil too.

It may be REALLY stuck so if it doesn't come loose easily let it soak for a few more hours or days. The bar (arbor) is a taper fit in the spindle and it may have been in there for a while.

Yeah was stuck in there pretty good. Drawbar was missing, used some allthread and WD 40 to convince it to come out, finally. Had some fine suggestions on this site for this old machine. Now I can get back to learning how to use it. Thank you
