I'm off to look at a used Bridgeport mill Wednesday evening. I've been
using a pair of these, a '61 and a '63, both 9x42 with power feeds, DRO,
and belt speed change so I feel somewhat comfortable with the usual
issues about condition and options. But is there some nice web site with
serial numbers by year, model numbers, options, features, yada, yada?
Something similar to the Logan Lathe info at
This one is unknown year, 9x36 table, collets, variable speed, 3 pahse,
and collets. comes with a static phase converter but I've built a rotory
converter before so I'll just do another one of those. I have a hunch
the price is too high but the only way to find out is to look at it.
Any special things to look for other than obvious wear and tear, drill
holes in the table, and uneven wear on the various gibs?
