6 inch Atlas
- I have a 6 inch atlas that has the timken bearings in the head stock.
I would like to install a Bison 5inch 5C collect chuck. The chuck and
the face plate for it weight around 15 pounds. Can the head stock and
bearings handle this much weight?
- Before you try this consider the very high cost of a new spindle ($200.00
area new from Clausing Atlas) and the time and effort required to remove and
replace spindle and all attached items. Seems to me 15# and overhang is just
asking for trouble.
