      Actually, the craigslist ad claims they are now made in China? I thought Hardinge is building new Bridgeports in NY.

      I think if I was going to go with the new(er) Bridgeport, I'd get one of the new Hardinge builds.

        They might slap on the safety stickers and add the power cord.

          Probably right. It just doesn't make any sense to manufacture the major components here. Hopefully they at least assemble everything here but maybe not.

            They were building the heads in Malaysia since the mid 90's, but that got too expensive (for them).

              Wow, so much butthurt over backlash.
              It has never been a problem for me,
              even using worn out shlt. I would much
              rather have backlash then split my nut
              and have it wear out twice as fast.
              If you don't know how to mill on a machine
              that has backlash, you need to continue to
              develop your machinist skills. If that hurts
              your feelings, whatever.

              And as for Taiwanese milling machine
              development, Bridgeport had the series
              two back in the day with square ways.
              The Taiwanese just did more ripping off
              than development.

                I'de buy it if it weren't $5000 worth of crating, shipping and rigging away from me.
                (And if I had any room left.)

                I cut it off twice and it's still too short!

                  This is your lucky day!!!! It's definitely not $5000 worth of transportation costs. Maybe it's $2000, or $4000, or $6000, but definitely not $5000
