Default Dividing head, rotary tables, Vee blocks etc

I have an ex-toolmaker friend who is 92 years old and having a clearout and he has asked me to sell some equipment for him. All the equipment was bought in the last 10 years or less and everything looks unused - most is still boxed.
It includes:-
Set of UNC taps and dies upto 1/2"
Set of UNF taps and dies upto 1/2"
Set of metric taps and dies Ito M12
Boxed set of expanding reamers upto 1" - Indian made.
Indexing head and tailstock with indexing plates - Vertex
2 sets of Vee blocks and clamps.
4 jaw self cantering chuck - 5"
3 jaw chuck - 4"
Set of Clarke slot drills / end mills HSS titanium
2 x 5" rotary tables - Vertex I think.

There are other items including dividing plates, 6" box plate, and an odd looking dividing head.

I don't think any of the above have ever been used apart from one or two taps and reamers (maybe!)

Before I go to the hassle of listing individually on eBay it seems to me that the package could be attractive to somebody setting up a workshop for miniatures. I am keen to sell as a job lot.

If you could be interested drop me a PM with an email address and I can send you pictures (once I have taken them) and make me an offer. Otherwise I will list individually on eBay to maximise the return to my friend.

I really don't know why he bought all the items as he has never, to my knowledge, owned a milling machine.

Cheers Carl.

Now that I have had a proper look at everything and measured things myself, I have a few corrections:-

The 4 jaw chuck is 100 mm diameter

The 3 jaw chuck is 80 mm diameter

The rotary tables are 110 mm diameter and probably Axminster. They are both complete with 3 indexing plates and handles.

Cheers Carl.

The owner has now decided that he wants me to sell the items separately.

1 x Rotary table
5C indexing head (not the dividing head and tailstock)
1 x pair of Vee blocks
Set of cutters

have already sold.

Cheers Carl.
