If you can find collet holders, still might be able to snag as a bargin.

My Index milling machine was a gem in the rough, as it no longer had B&S #9 taper, but was ground to R8. Someday when I hit the jackpot I'll send it in for the $6,900 ground up restoration at Wells Index. link to ebay page http://tinyurl.com/348v85

Thats a pretty good resource. $250 to have a spindle ground to R8... I dont think thats too excessive.

The Wells-Index machines can be easily reground to R-8, as they have a large amont of metal in the quill ram. Looking at the Atlas/Clausing/Johanson, the quill appears closer to mill/drill size - which means a regrind to R-8 would probably not work.

Brown & Sharpe stopped making taper tooling decades ago, so there is very little available. I ran a twice-a-day search on eBay for B&S #9 tooling ... had half a dozen hits over a two year period. There are some awful Chinese B&S #7 available on eBay if you're dead set on getting this mill.

The original Bridgeport (Round Ram M-Head) was built a little lighter than the later Dovetail Ram J-Head. The M-Head & the J-Head are the two manual mills that Bridgeport has made since 1939.

By comparison, the Johanson appears to weigh about 1/3 as much, more like a benchtop miller.
