Tooling

All collets are in a rack next to the white bridgeport.

Special Notes

  • Reverse and Forward do not necessarily mean reverse and forward. Check rotation visually.
  • There are NO STOPS on this system. The table can quite literally be driven off the end. Don't do that.
  • Autofeed speed dial should be kept at zero, unless being used, so it isn't inadvertently turned on.

  • Switch for running the autofeed is underneath the speed dial. It is delicate. Be careful in handling/switching.

Lubrication
