There is no spring on the quill of my rockwell vertical mill. I find this so annoying because the quill has dropped a few time which usually breaks a tip off an endmill or puts a dent in the workpiece.
The mill has a lever on the right side with a collar that is 1.75 inchs in diameter that looks like a perfect place for a flat spring.
Has anyone added a quill return spring to a rockwell vertical mill?? If so, I would really like to hear about it! Otherwise I will invent something cause I hate trashing expensive endmills!
