Weight is something to consider, thank you for your feed back

Looking at the exploded view of the BF20, it looks like most of the weight would be in the column and other parts that go with it

Also I have MT3 tapper on my Lathe so I have more tooling for MT3

Default SU1 updated with swarf guards and DRO

A most interesting mod!

Does this mod increase the work area of the machine? It could be wishful thinking on my part as one problem with this mill (the SU1) in my mind is the small working area especially under the vertical spindle. Might be my imagination as the mill just looks big in the pictures.

When it first came out i was impressed with the SU1 and seriously considered it for purchase when funds became available. How ever the published workspace dimensions scared me off. For some reason the mill looks "bigger" in these pictures.
