Are Gorton Mastermills a good Mill? They look to be a Bridgeport type mill. I have a chance to buy a Gorton 1-22 Mastermill.

I own an early Gorton. She is a heavy, rock solid machine. The only drawback is the spindle taper. I understand later machines use a R8 collet, but early machines like mine use a GMT taper. The spindle may be reground to use R8 collets. I have no idea what that process would take or how much money that would cost. I got lucky and have most of the collets. Otherwise, it cuts great, very solid, and very accurate, and has some features that Bridgports and the like don't have.
