Hi everyone, New Mill upgrade from a R8 hobby mill. It's in the Garage now and I've started to dig in on her. I see that it has no drawbar or power drawbar but there is a mount it seems. The manual notes it's a NST 30 7/24 (or NMTB right?).

So here is the question. Power drawbars seem pretty cheap. But what kind/type for a 30 taper. I see mostly R8 types? There is a mounting top (pic below).

So- Can ya chime in for a power draw-bar setup on this new setup? For a short-term- Do I make a drawbar or do they come for a cut-to-lenth deal?

pipe-dream: Maybe even a tool changer for a Supermax (would be sweet!) really... Do they exist :-)

Thanks everyone!

All set here... It's 1/2 13 thread. I can make the drawbar now. Also found CN Cookbook (Man that site just rocks!! ) Something to make.
CNC Cookbook: Powered Drawbar for IH Mill (http://www.cnccookbook.com/CCMillDrawbar.html)

Thanks and all the best for 2015!
