This pledge is for a Slotting Head to fit the Bridgeport mill, the example in mind being an Original Equipment type E Head.

What it is

A slotter cuts square edged holes in metal, usually for keyways to hold gears onto shafts or splines, and also allows forming of gears from scratch and v-grooves which would otherwise be impossible by milling.

The ability to make keyed parts would be both a useful addition to our capabilities, and a boon to our ability to repair the other machines in the space.
