      Are you able to rotate it around the vertical spindle so that the weight of the motor is over the body of the mill rather than the table? I'd be concerned that as pictured and with only that one clamp that the entire vertical attachment would want to rotate on the horizontal spindle, putting it too easily out of tram.

        Oh yeah - it'll rotate 360*. In the pics it was configured for moving.
