    My BP quill speed handle (ratcheting) broke and looking at a replacement I noticed there is a version with 2 pins (mine just has 1 pin). Will the 2 pin version work on my series 1 BP, is it better than the 1 pin version?
    Thanks,
    John

    Ok, I tasked to H&W Machine and ordered their 2 pin version of the ratcheting speed handle. This one has two pins which both retract when you pull the handle for a much more positive locking mechanism. I like it better than the original Bridgeport single pin version. H&W explained all this to me before I placed the order, they are very helpful. Good service and reasonable pricing. They shipped it fast on Monday and I got it today (Wednesday).
