I am in search for some Wysong and miles mortising machine chisel bushings and auger bushings. I thought I had found a guy who makes them but he quit doing it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks as always,

As in, the machines holder is too large for the chisels? Something like this?

As in this exactly. I took this pic from the Purdue shop. Another shop I work for bought the same machine but didn’t come with any of this.

The guys on the left hold the auger. The guys on the right hold the chisels. Different sizes are required for different chisels and bits.

Hard to believe that you can’t find someone on campus to make them. I wouldn’t think it would be difficult. Several places in town also (Lafayette Tool and Die, Anita, Advanced Repair and Machining).

Gerald Welti does good work also and owns Wettech in Goodland. He has made several things for us over the years.

This has certainly crossed my mind, but the parts I need are not for a Purdue machine, which makes it difficult to hire somebody as it can be a conflict of interest. It’s absurdly political around here.

My hope with this thread is that somebody will be like “you need to talk to Bill, he’s been collecting wysong parts for decades and can help you with whatever you need” That would be amazing, albeit unlikely. I might call the one machinist I know and see what he says. Id like to avoid that as I imagine it wont be cheap. At least not as cheap as parts that are already made, sitting in someone’s garage.
