The best was the MQ, with a full screwcutting and feeds gearbox and equipped with two headstock-motor units - so it was always ready for vertical milling and drilling. A cheaper version, the cheaper M, was mechanically identical - and with two headstocks - but with changewheels for screwcutting. The entry-level model, the M, came with changewheels and only one headstock that had to be shared between lathe and milling column. However, on the better-specified lathes supplied with a non-sliding quill assembly in the lathe headstock i. In all cases the spindle now ran in a Class 7, double-row roller bearing at the front and two Class 7 angular-contact ball bearings at the rear while the overhung pulley that drove the spindle ran on two angular-contact ball bearings. However, variations on this theme have been discovered, and it is entirely possible that not only were lathes originally supplied with a vertical-milling head MQ and M fitted with a "lathe" headstock that lacked the sliding quill mechanism, but the headstock supplied for milling was altered to accept collets similar to the ER type, which had a much better grip on milling cutters.

The machine was heavily corroded and really needed a thorough revamp. The only thing I know of the history of this machine, is that it was built in and apparently has been used frequently, looking at the wear of the bed. So I started to search for information on the Maximat Standard. My Maximat Standard was supplied in by Edelstaal in Amsterdam. This lathe was the predecessor of the EMCO machine series.

This really helped me to restore my machine. Luckily I could get the machine bed grinded at a machine shop for free almost The rest of the restoring works I did at a workshop of the Delft University of Technology where I studied and they allowed me to work for myself thanks guys!

The final part of the restoring was to paint the machine so it looks good. At the site of Carl-Christians Danielsens which is off-line since some time , I found a picture of his Maximat Standard in attractive colors.

He was so kind to share the RAL numbers of the colors used, so I could complete my job with the result you can find on the pictures on this page.

As you can see there are some minor things to do, but that will come in the near future. The most important thing is that I can use the machine now!

It was incomplete motor mounting plate was missing , but I could fix that. The FB2 clone is not the original type of milling head that was supplied in the past for this machine, but with an adapter plate it fits quite well.
