Nice and clean looking. The judges will deduct points for leaving the key in the chuck though.
Wow! Very nice automatic apron and quick change gearbox and everything nice looking late I just have the Plain Jane apron and no quick change gearbox however I did do the wiper motor electronic speed control conversion and it works out quite nicely the only time I need to swap gears is if I need to thread something which is rare.
I will point out that the cost of new parts for any machine today will reflect what new parts cost today, not what they cost back in the 1960's.
Also, back when machines like this one were new, they didn't "come with" much at all. And although many would disagree with me, I classify things like chucks. QCTP's and holders, steady rests, etc., as accessories, not tooling. Tooling for the most part is expendable, or at least in my use of the term it is. When these machines were new, they seldom came with either accessories or tooling beyond a few minor items like dead centers and wrenches to fit the machine (and which unless the machine was in regular service recently are probably all MIA).
