A single aluminium casting replaces the iron base, allowing the UPT, complete with Sensitive Drilling attachment to be rigidly mounted on either the cross slide or the lathe bed. Whilst this casting has been designed for the Myford 7 Series, adaptations have been made for many popular lathes.
Mounted on the bed between the headstock and cross slide, the Sensitive Drill can now be powered by the lathe at a variety of speeds. Work placed on the cross slide can then be co-ordinate drilled or spotted to accuracies of 1/1000". Mounted on the cross slide, the UPT can hold number stamps with precision to complete work that has been graduated on the lathe.
The kit includes the casting and other material to complete the foot and its anchorages.
