Trying to locate an Alps power-Head unit
Posted by: Mark Talmo (71.147.59.---)

I saw an ad for an Alps power head unit but cannot remember where I saw it. It includes the upgraded chuck with the motor mounted directly beneath and inside the aluminum frame (I do not think it came with a drying motor which I do not need anyway) and a foot petal. The price was about $260.00. I do not need the bed or uprights as this would be grafted to my own bed. I may also be interested in a height-matching live center as well. Can any of you steer me in the right direction? Additionally, if someone is familiar with the unit, what is the spindle-height (centerline of the chuck to the bed)? Thank you for your time, concern and hopeful reply.

Gary and Bill,
Thank you for responding. The CRB unit may be what I remembered seeing, but without being reversible, it is of little interest to me. Thanks none-the-less!!!
