I have a powermatic millright mvn. I am in need of a turret, mine has a corner of the casting broken and missing right where one of the clamping bolts goes. I would love to find one to replace it

I could be wrong BUT........ as I understand it you can mount a Bridgeport J head on a Burke, I've never done so but a goggle search brought up the info, I looked into it because I have a Burke millerite, just throwing it out to you, hope it helps, good luck John

PS if you have the broken part of the casting you may be able to braze it back on and machine out any unevenness of the mounting surface, again, just a thought, john

Thanks John, I do not have the broken piece, but I was able to find another turret on the Yahoo group. I will probably use the stock head for awhile but will be looking for "the deal" on a bridgeport head.
