I have seen several machines for sale that have fitted a Bridgport head (MT2 spindle) as a conversion.
One machine was a clausing vertical mill with the bridgeport head. Another was adding the bridgport head to a horizontal mill to make a combo vertical/horizontal machine.
I already have a rockwell combo machine which uses a R8 spindle. I'm wondering how the rockwell vertical head compares to the bridgeport head? Does the bridgport head have more spindle travel, better bearings or perhaps power down feed??
Inquiring minds want to know. chuck
