Anyone got any ideas for something similar for handling large screw on chucks?  (Short of a crane!)  I nearly dropped the 4 jaw of our 14.5" SB during a swap yesterday.  Fortunately, I always place a plank over the bed to catch it, but I always fear mangling the end thread of either the mandrel or backplate.  The Camlock on our Colchester is much easier to use, even though the chucks are heavier.

When I bought my Bridgeport 30 years ago it had a shop built fixture on it that is of the same design. Works great.  No bearings just steel bushing.

That looks like an interesting devise. I wonder how well it works or if it will bind at the pivot points.
 
 
 
stumbled across this gadget to manage a vise on a mill........
