Bridgeport Vertical Milling Machine
The Bridgeport 2J vertical milling machine is among the most iconic and popular metal working machines in the world. A vertical milling machine resembles a drill press, and can be used for drilling holes, but typically is used with a cutter that can remove metal when moved “sideways” into the work piece, not just down into the material like a drill press. To facilitate precise movement, the work piece is attached to a very rigid table that can be accurately moved to within thousandths of an inch. Maker Works has added a digital read out that is accurate to 0.0005″, and a precision Kurt vise with SnapJaws.
