    Excellent info, thanks. The spindle cap is solid, there is no place for a rod a la a Bridgeport or anything, there is no anywhere for a wedge to go that I can see. I'll have to check, but I believe I...

    That was it, thanks so much. I was able to use it for modest aluminum milling with a 3/8" end mill but as the Wiki said, not it's real intention.
