    Hi there, does anyone know what taper is standard on the boxford 260vmc, i know they came with Easychange tool holders from Coventry but what the taper is i have no idea and after trawling the net all day i still have no idea, there is so little information about these machines it makes me wonder if anyone actually ever owned or used one!!

  2. Its the same as the 190VMC. You might find out more info by talking to Coventry Toolholders on +44(0) 24 7664 5999. They make them for R8, MT and other tapers but could probably tell you what was supplied to Boxford. Or talk to Boxford on +44 (0)1422 358311

    I'm guessing its going to be R8 or MT3

    "Here i have for sale an excellent condition Boxford 260 VMC cnc milling machine with R8 easychange toolholder, which is converted to Mach3" so there's a clue....

    I think as there is so little information on this mill that I will make a thread showing what i find out (Specs & observations) when I get this machine home and also a step by step of how I fully convert it to MACH3 so that others will not have to ask such stupid questions in the future.
