Bill - You've been a great help. There seems to be a lot of Barber Colman machines out there. Some have "automatic plunge and square cut cycles". I'm gussing this means they will move radially (for throating) and then maybe tangentially repeatedly? Also when they talk about hob slide are they referring to motion in the direction of the axis of the gear or perpendicular to the axis (what I call tangentially)?
