Assemble, set-up and adjust a Bridgeport Milling Machine (Stage 2)

CT Hackerspace has just received a Bridgeport Milling machine that we are in the process of putting back into service. Stage 1 of the build was successful and we expect to make even more progress at this meetup.

Stage 2: Clean the remaining parts which were not present at the last meetup. Assemble Saddle, Y Axis Lead Screw, Lead Screw Nut, X Axis & Table assembly. Depending on the available time, we may even power up the machine.

If you are interested in this type of machinery or would just like to take the opportunity to come down and check out the hackerspace, please plan on coming in!

    Everything went really well! By the end of the evening the assembly was complete and we were able to power up the machine and drill a small hole. Stage 3 will be final adjustment and Tramming of head as well as mounting of vise etc.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
