Hardinge wants to start building the BP knee mills and supply parts and service contingent on definative agreements and satisfaction of certain conditions with Bridgeport International.

If all goes according to plan the machines will be in production at Hardinge Brothers Elmira plant the first quarter of 2003.

Full parts, sales, and service for the Bridgeport knee mills will be offered then.

I read that yesterday. I thought to myself that could be good or bad, depending on whether or not Hardinge chooses to build the BP in-house or overseas. Man, a Series 1 built by Hardinge? I can hardly control myself.....

Yes, made in NY state by Hardinge! I am sure it will not make them drop in price though. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//eek.gif
