Boring cylinder on a Bridgeport - Don Terrill’s Speed-Talk

Sep 15, 2009  You're fighting an uphill battle, using a mill without a rigid spindle. 'dull' is a relative term, if your setup is more rigid you may not have as much problem with 'dull'. Use a boring head that will fit inside the cylinder, unscrew it from it's shank, and make / buy a threaded extension to allow the boring head to reach the end of your cut.

Can Small Engine Cylinder Boring be Done on a Bridgeport?

Aug 06, 2005  Yes, the Bridgeport is accurate enough. You will still need to get the bore honed for proper surface finish. If you are going to try to touch hone it with dingleberrys, I don't think you will be satisfied. You must use a sharp tool. By sharp, I don't mean large

Fixturing Cylinder Heads On a Mill - Practical Machinist

Apr 06, 2012  I don't think that a face mill that big is a sensible match for a Bridgeport for example, even if you had a way to mount one on an R8 holder. I don't know, I do it all the time, I've used it on pieces with similar cross sections like supercharger cases and a few cylinder heads that could be clamped down flat.

resurface Bridgeport table - Practical Machinist

Sep 28, 2017  Then surface the table down just a tad. I have seen a table with nice welds at a rebuilder's shop. The weld areas will be noticeable but will look better than the ugly table hit that was there.

Boring on a Bridgeport mill [Archive] - Scream And Fly ...

Anybody got any tricks (they could share ;) ) on boring cylinders on a Bridgeport mill? I'm making an angle plate referencing the deck, and making a bar to reference the crankshaft center. I know these usually aren't bored out on this type of mill, but I got a lot of blocks kicking around to practice on and possibly re-sleeve, so I figured I'd give it a try.

Boring on Mill - UF MAE

Boring heads on Bridgeport-size milling machines should usually not be used with depth cuts deeper than 0.020”. It’s important to understand there is also a safe minimum depth of cut, below which the tool constantly transitions between cutting and smearing, leaving a very inconsistent size and finish.

Bridgeport Clones Are any of them close? - The Home Machinist!

Nov 11, 2006  However, my JET has never been abused. Your own machines get much better care than than the ones your employer owns. Some machine dealers claim the difference between a JET and a Bridgeport mill will surface when the machines are run all day, every day.
