Wasn't gonna post this as I haven't been posting any of my purchases or at all lately but I'm so happy with my score I just had to!

Been wanting a bigger tapping head & was looking for one off & on for the past few years. Finally the right PERFECT one came along. Also a TC/DC model (depth control) which I didn't really care about having for the bigger one since my smaller Tapmatic is a TC/DC so that was a plus. But the best part is that it's brand new, never used, still sealed, even the box is mint, & I got it for only $350! That's cheaper than what some of these sell for used. These cost just under $1K new. Can't believe no one else bid on it! I'm soooo happy right now! I thought there would be no way I'd be able to top the deal I got when I got my smaller Tapmatic but it just happened!


Seller even included a brand new Jacobs 1/2" straight arbor which wasn't mentioned in the listing. I had no idea how big these 50 models are, still smaller than a Procunier though. My 30 TC/DC has a 5/8" straight arbor. Was planning to put a 5/8" arbor on this one too but now that I see how big it is gonna have to rethink that & probably go with R8. I was also planning to sell my 30 once I got a 50 but I don't think I'm gonna do that anymore either & keep both.

Same here, clicked on the link with the intention of buying it and the price stopped me immediately... I did placed it on my wishlist...

I want a dividing head first... looking at this one on eBay... not much more than that live center goes for... from the things on my list to get, I rather get this B01 first...

The link sends me to a BS-0 version.

Returned the Rohm drill chuck to Amazon. Will try another one. Not expecting Amazon packaging to change, but perhaps the bearings on the new chuck will be in better shape.
