Mine has a nt30 taper.
"I think Gorton pretty much set them up at the customer's request, so it's really hard to say. I'd pull it if you can, and take it to a local pro and ask, I don't know a lot about vertical milling machines yet. I have a couple people a lot smarter than I am, so will rely on them. I will ask for you though. I will call a buddy in a few days who is pretty sharp and ask, for you, shoot you me a photo ior two if you can. Still waiting to get the machine in place in shop, so haven't messed with it too much yet. Just got a 100 amp sub put in shop, hooked up today, as a matter of fact.
That makes it a little less hairy for sure, they are like all half nuts or fruits out here, so one has to got to watch them every second. Grades are like 6%, and a bit curvy too, especially coming out of LA, so one has to really watch it. But, still, if you've never pulled a trailer it can be intimidating as hell on flat ground or no. Let me know how the drawbar thing turns out, curious, haven't taken mine out yethttp://manuals.chudov.com/Gorton-MasterMill/Gorton-MasterMill-Maintenance-Manual.pdf
Check out Page 66 It's all the options [NICE!! .Looks like a little fancier machine than mine, I don't have the auto, VFD speed control on mine. Glad you made it home OK.
It was a pretty straight shot from NY to Philly. the biggest grades were going up and down the bridges.
Wasn't too bad all in all though. I was in traffic most of the time so I never got up to speed for very long.
