The Priest Tools Power Drawbar is a CNC-class drawbar system that automates the task of loosening and tightening the drawbar when changing a tool on a milling machine. This greatly expedites the tool changing process and adds a great deal of convenience.

Installation requires very slight modification to the mill (drill one small hole). It works with mills that have a quill and is compatible with the following milling machines:

Little Machine Shop 5500 (Sieg SX2.7)

Grizzly G0463 (Sieg X3)

Grizzly G0619 (Sieg SX3)

Grizzly G0722R (Sieg SX4)

Simple to Use - Insert the actuator plate into the cylinder plate and release the spring plunger that locks it into place. Then flip the switch up to activate the system and remove the tool from the collet. Insert another tool into the collet, and then flip the switch down to dis-engage the Power Drawbar and secure the tool for machining.

Requires a 90 PSI air supply. (You furnish the air compressor.)

*NOTE* This cannot be installed on the newer 6500 and 6550 SX2.7 mills without doing major modifications
