I have used many mills over the years including "High End" Schaublin. For me the Bridgeport is the most versatile design for general use, especially for home use. Not the most rigid machine but very little that it can not do. Spares availability is good and plenty of machines around, patience is required to find one that is not to worn but they are around. Mine is a 2002 machine I have had around 10 years with little or no faults.

Bridgeport machines are really versatile as said. There's even an attachment to convert the machine to Horizontal -albeit with a big reduction in daylight. BJ2 should have the two speed motor. Accessories like power feed units made for the various clones will usually bolt straight on too.

Looks tidy although the paint flatters it. Useful readout on the quill. My machine is the same except for a 4" riser block in the turret.

Nice looking machine but it looks like that staircase was built by a ship designer.!!

As Chris says, very good to have X, Y, Knee and quill readouts.
