Thanks for the link Mikeyah. Regardless of my honest mistake, this is the only real Bridgeport I see listed For Sale currently or in the recent past. If I guy is looking for a great Milling machine he might really like the opportunity to own a real USA machine instead of a "Bridgeport Clone"~ Am open to reasonable offers.
Thank You,
SDH

MCritchley, thanks for asking...Pretty much already retired...I have this wonderful, almost new machine that is totally under utilized and I mainly have used for walnut stocks. Glad you have enjoyed the writing, I continue my Custom Shop Column in Sports Afield and selling my Custom Rifles book and teaching some Seminars. Thanks for the kind words, if you know of anyone interested in an ideal gunshop Mill, please let them know about this machine. I'm very open to offers, especially to see it go to a gunshop.
Best,
SDH

I have re-evaluated the price and am looking for a reasonable offer in the $16,000 range.
It sure looks like a beautiful mill in great condition. It is outside my budget but is exactly what I would love to have in my shop. Someone will be very happy. I learned what skills I have from a perfectionist gunsmith/artist. Unfortunately I have moved 350 miles from my friend and his shop. Best of luck.
