Wanted: VGS 20 Parts

Post by cnsperf » Tue Nov 07, 2017 3:31 pm

I am looking to update my Tobin Arp VGS 20000 to use the later design head clamping rollover fixture. If anyone has some parts/pieces just laying around please contact me as I may be interested in purchasing them.

Also, if you know of any manufacturers/dealers that may offer parts for these machines please let me know that also.

Thanks in advance.

There is several rollover fixtures out there but there is a guy in Iowa that builds custom fixtures.
Kevin Taylor enterprizes I have had him build stuff for me over the years to fill the gap between what BHJ has and what is needed to do some custom work that BHJ stuff does not do right.

Give him a call and see what he can do. this is a system that will be a bit costly as any VGs machine that's up for parts just for the head fixture will be a bit more then what you may want to adapt to a TA machine.

He is a good guy to work with and vary fair in cost :D

This is what I currently have. I can probably make a clamp that will bolt to the existing rotating part, just thought it would be a time saver if someone had one I could purchase instead.
