    I would have been ecstatic to get a 2k vertical with low lead and gears for $3600. Like jumping out of my skin grinning. And another $600 for the change gears.

    A unique B&S Dividing Head

    For years I’ve had a Brown and Sharpe that I’ve primarily used for regular dividing head work. Rarely have I done any helical or spiral indexing. And in all reality, as I think on it, I primarily use...
