    Default Mighty Comet Spindle Upgrade

    Long time lurker, first time poster...

    I recently sold my Bridgeport to replace it with a heavier machine with box ways. I have only found one Acer with a 40 taper spindle. Recently found a decently priced Mighty Comet but of course, has an R8 spindle.

    Where can I get a 30 taper (or 40 taper...) spindle for a Mighty Comet or Acer or Supermaxx mill?

    I tried google for parts, looked on eBay. I can only find Bport spindles and most are located in China.

    I was looking at a Lagun and convert it but their parts supplier in California wanted $4,000 for the spindle and bearings....almost 3x the cost of the machine itself.....(had some pretty beat up ways as if someone had run the CNC with the table locked
