Hi There,

It probably varies an inch or two depending on the motor.


Also, whether there is a 5" or 6" riser under the turret.

Good Luck!

71" with no riser in my case, and also that is from the bottom of the base to the top of the motor case, no floor mounts included. An additional consideration is the headroom to pull the drawbar if you need to, although you could rotate the head to the side to do that.

You can also lower the quill to gain a little more room for
withdrawing the drawbar. Tilting the headstock will work
of course put re-tramming the head just for that would be
a pain IMHO.

My Millrite is somewhere near 7 feet in over-all height when
you add the riser and have one of the geared-down motors.
