15 years ago
dealer for my Bridgeport. He had quite a few Bridgeport brand that
had cracked housings where the quill clamp slit ends. I guess this is
a weak point. The H & R unit I ended up buying had a thicker cast
iron housing than the Bridgeport brand unit so maybe it's a little
stronger. What is it people are doing, or forgetting to do that winds
up breaking them? I intend to only use it with R8 collets and end
mills, not with the horizontal milling arbor.
