    Thanks Bob, Great idea, very relevant for me. My Hardinge horizontal has a Bridgeport M head that I mounted on the 2" overarm. I've only ever used the head aligned vertically. The other day I needed to incline the head 37 degrees off vertical. Without thinking I loosened the overarm clamps to gently make the adjustment and wham, the head being very top heavy swung instantly about 90 degrees stopping when the motor hit part of the mill. Luckily no damage to anything. I have a spare gearboxto donate to the project.
    Thanks - making stuff would not be half as much fun without the acknowledgement of you guys.

    When it's exactly 37* that you need, it's really tricky bumping it there! The motor hitting was probably the very best outcome.
