    I wonder when that was? I've got an 87' model that has "made in Singapore" on the head, I think the base was cast in Brazil and finished in the US.
    Me to, mine is a 1988, I think. The head wears the same tag as yours. I heard the same about the base, and at the end all they did here was final assembly and paint.
    I cut it off twice; it's still too short

      In my experience no, a quality Taiwanese mill is every bit as good as the 50's era Bridgeports and in some ways better.
      I just need one more tool,just one!

        I really like my Acer 3VK 10 x 50 mill. I bought it new in '96 and would not trade it for a nice Bridgeport. I have run new Bridgeport's and was never impressed. If I had it to do over, I would go with the Acer again.
