I've just acquired a mortiser which is labelled "made in Taiwan" and
"to Nutools specification" from which I deduce that it is at best a
copy of a then current (1988) Nutool machine. It is a solid cast iron
machine about 5 ft high with "proper" controls for locating the
Question - does anyone here own such a machine? I would like to get
the correct specification for the balancing spring, which sits inside
the pillar, missing from mine.
