If you are planning on refurbishing your Bridgeport Series 1 “J” Head Mill (Step Pulley Model) or if you are in the market for a good used Bridgeport, then this manual by ILION Industrial Services is a great place to start.
” A Guide to Renovating the Bridgeport Series 1 “J” Head Milling Machine “, our 126 page soft cover shop manual, is fully illustrated with over 350 B&W photographs and diagrams, plus step-by-step instructions for disassembling, cleaning, reassembling and adjusting all of the critical components of the Step Pulley J-head milling machine.
The manual illustrates all of the different model variations plus it contains a section on evaluating used machinery prior to purchase. Bridgeport never produced a full-blown maintenance manual for their mills so this is the closest you will come to a step-by-step guide. If you are interested in the Bridgeport 2J Variable Speed model, please take a look at our other manuals.
The typeface of the manual is printed two points larger than normal for those of us who prefer to work at the bench without the use of our reading glasses. The instructions are simple and easy to follow… no prior machinery renovation experience is required.
Though the Bridgeport is an industrial machine, it is well suited for the home garage shop or small business and the task of finding one, getting it home and getting it back into operating condition is not as expensive and challenging as you may think. Let us show you how to do it.
Softcover, 126 pages, over 350 B&W photographs and diagrams.
