Centec 2B horizontal milling machine

Gentlemen,
At the moment this is only curiosity, tomorrow I am collecting a Centec 2B horizontal mill for my workshop and I am wondering if anyone knows of a
vertical head attachment that maybe available in the near future. I have a Mill /drill that I find adequate but it would be nice to have the mill complete.

They are always expensive - usually a lot more than the whole of th
rest of the mill.
Nice mint one in the for sale section of lathes.co.uk
Given its condition it is not a bad price

I have got brain fade, its a 2A no B but according to the original catalogues its the same for both, saw the one on LATHES which would make it 14 times what I paid for the complete mill in good working order with cutters, vice and Centec grinding head and support bracket 60.00 the lot. I will rely on my Mill drill instead.

You're right it is the same for 2A/B - I've got a 2A.
It's a real shame the vertical heads are so expensive. I watched good, but inferior one at the same price on the Home and Worksho Machinery website for a few months thinking they'll never shift it, bu they did.
Pretty much most of the value of a Centec mill is in the vertical head Great news if you are after a horizontal mill, otherwise you need to di deep. That said, they are fabulously well made - nothing really lik them available now

Could have bought a second-hand Bridgy for that much!

Well for many of us space and weight is as important as cost. I live i
a second floor flat. A Bridgy is out of the question. Just getting a 2 up the stairs was fun enough
