I bought it for the endmills and ended up with a couple of tool posts, a faceplate, and 6" Bison chuck.

I got the endmills for a good price but they all have a taper on the end. All the tapers are different from 60 degrees to 87 and I was wondering what they would have been used for. I was thinking for valve seats but not sure.

I can't use the tool posts or faceplate so I plan on cleaning them up and and selling them at some point.

what size/type tool posts and what type of spindle for the face plate? I'm looking for an L0 face plate and a CXA toolpost.

The tool post is a piston type and uses the CXA holders. There are 4 holders.
Here are a few more pictures. I was more interest in finding out what the why the endmills had that grind on them. I really didn't think the items would get much interest or I would have posted them in the for sale and done a better job of providing descriptions. Sorry guys I don't have access to the internet when I am out in the shop so I only check it when I am in the house.

I’m interested in a cxa tool post also those 4 sided single height things I hate.
I am looking for 3/4” tool holders though.

Nice haul! Lots of nice goodies.

(I have self control and therefore am not interested in any of it...and I'm going to keep telling myself that)

Ok, Crittermutt and I have agreed on a price for the Multifix, so it has been tentatively sold.

I believe you are right with regards to the faceplate. The chuck is mounted on a backplate with a taper on it. I am not sure what it was mounted on. Definitely not a lathe.
