    Default Trying to identify a Bridgeport Mill

    Hello folks. First time to post on this forum but been reading it for awhile and you guys are incredibly knowledgeable. Iím looking to buy a mill for my home shop and I ran across this mill for sell that is within my budget. I went and looked at it yesterday and thereís something different about this Bridgeport, that I havenít seen on others and after an exhaustive search of google I cannot seem to identify it. I have some pictures of it but donít see any way of posting them yet. The machine says in the Bridgeport tag the serial number is an M7612, which reveals nothing about it in google(I found a post afterwards that explained where to locate the Model Identification info) however this machine has two motors, one is in the vertical position above the spindle, and the other one is in the horizontal position on the right side of the mill with a ~3Ē belt going to a pulley/flywheel. On the back of the mill thereís a drive chain, and on the front of the main body below the quill thereís an opening which looks like it is for another spindle. Is this mill a vertical and horizontal combination? Iíll try to add the pictures.

    Not really, the horizontal motor is higher up on the side above the work surface. I made another post that had pictures but they arenít very big, and hard to see. Thank you for the reply
