A Guide to Renovating the Bridgeport "2J" Variable Speed Milling Machine, by ILION Industrial Services LLC
ILION Industrial Services is pleased to announce this new renovation manual which is written specifically for the Bridgeport 2J variable speed mills. If you are planning on refurbishing your Bridgeport Series 1 "2J" or "2J2" Mill or if you are out in the market looking for a good used Bridgeport, then this manual is a great place to start.
" A Guide to Renovating the Bridgeport 2J Variable Speed Milling Machine " ; our 152 page soft-cover shop manual, is fully illustrated with over 400 B&W photographs and diagrams, plus step-by-step instructions for disassembling, cleaning, reassembling and adjusting all of the critical components of the variable speed 2J milling machine.
The manual also illustrates the difference in the various models and provides guidance for evaluating a used machine before you 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. 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 loacting one, getting it home and placing it back in service is not as expensive or challenging as you may think. Let us show you how.
