    Hello All
    Please excuse me for not sticking purely on a CNC topic.
    Six months ago I bought an old Capco surface grinder that was converted into an improvised vertical mill.
    Hoping to restore it into use as a surface grinder.
    Yet to find a picture of this exact model so far and am struggling to source information regarding rebuilding the headset.
    I will attach some photos to illustrate my quandry.
    I thought taper roller bearing would be needed but both bearing seats face the same direction.
    The spindle I will need to make or get made, have no idea what diameter and type of attachment the wheel will need [ either a locking nut or hub with a morse taper?]
    The motor sits inside the casing and drives the spindle internally.
    I even have the original drive belt made of material with a metal hinge!
    Would love to get any thoughts on this, feel free to tell me what you think!

    Hi I have one of these hand Surface Grinders. I could help with parts, and a bit of knowledge. But I don't expect you will answer looking at your inactivity.
