Really, no one has any pics? I've seen an m-head on a clausing, but have no pics of it. Is the m-head even any better that the clausing head given the size of machine its on? Hope to see some new pics here soon, show 'em if ya got 'em!

thanks, Brian

I haven't found anybody else who has done this yet, but here it is. Benchmaster mill with a Bridgeport M Head...

First photo is the way I eventually ended up setting up my "riser columns." (I needed more space for the knee and vise.)
The second photo is the way it looked before repositioning the riser columns.

Here's my M head that I mounted on my Brown and Sharpe 2B horizontal mill. It's gone through a couple of evolutions from when I first got it when I had a very low ceiling to now when I have a much higher one. The jack shaft slows the speeds down to better fit my needs. Works very well for me.
