While thumbing though some of my EMCO Unimat literature I came accross a brochure that is 11 X 17 printed on both sides and folded in the middle. On the front is a full page description of a Multi-Matic machine. It is a Model #300. Spindle is MT3, Spindle Feed Travel is 4 3/4", Nose to table is 18 1/4", Column Dia. 5 1/2", Table is 23" X 9 1/2", Table Travels are Long.=16 3/8" & Cross is 6 1/4". Motor is 220V, 1P, 1 1/2HP or 3P. Spindle Speeds are 105,220, 400, 440, 800, 870, 1560 & 3020. It has a geared head with 8 speeds. It says: "The Precision table is of well known make.", lead screws are precision ground. The table has a oil rim, guide groove, 2 T slots on top and one in front. The "guide groove is in the center of the table. Two things are apparent. 1. The head is fully enclosed and is permanently attached to the top of the round column. The head and column move up & down in a collar with two clamps and the bottom goes into the stand. The head will pivot 45 degrees right and left. There is a large crank handle on top to raise and lower the vertical assembly.The power controls are on the side of the stand below the table and there are two speed control levers on the left side of the head. This machine was offered by CHICAGO SUPPLY & TOOL CO., 901 N. WESTERN AVE., in Chicago, IL. All in all an interesting machine for $1295.00. I am guessing that the brochure is from the late 1960s or early 1970s as The EMCO products are from that era.
Has any one ever heard of this machine or seen one?
