For Sale / Wanted / Vicmarc VL 300 for sale
« Last post by philstevenson on August 01, 2022, 10:54:34 AM »
Yes really! There have been recent postings about this rare beast and how difficult it is to find one.
Well, a friend of mine has an excellent example which he sadly needs to sell.
Great condition and much improved with swing away tailstock, outboard tool rest, remote electrical control box and probably a vacuum chuck setup.
I think he'll be asking about £4000 for it but you will need to negotiate directly with Tom (he's not on this forum).
I am personally NOT involved in the sale but if you are interested contact me and I will give you his number, then it's up to you.
Located close to Birmingham Airport / NEC.

Brilliant thank you guys, there's a few options to contemplate there! I've discovered one has an insert, the correct threading isn't listed on any sellers website but an email to the company has confirmed it is available so I'll start off with that and see how it goes. Thanks again!

Adapters aren’t an ideal solution as you can get a little runout. I’ve even had this on a standard chuck insert. As a result I will only buy direct threaded chucks or those with a backplate. Some adapters also leave the chuck sticking out from the bearings a bit too far in my opinion.

That’s a good point actually. If you have a faceplate that fits perhaps it can be machined to fit something like this?

Just a thought.

Not a solution unless the chucks you have are Nova, or at least compatible with it. but it is a starting point.... perhaps you need to sell the chucks and buy a new one that fits.

Thanks for the replies so far guys.
I got the spindle sizing from here it's an Arundel K series
http://www.peterchild.co.uk/chucks/threads.htm
I've got the manual but it doesn't have any specifications in it. Where would I get something machined? There's a couple of faceplates with it that fit and ford oil filter connectors are the thread I need for the chucks it might be a bit heath Robinson but can you see any problems with welding one to the other? As long as it's square!
