    Default Bridgeport Brake Air Cylinder

    Would anyone happen to know the Bimba or equivalent part number for the air cylinder used for the spindle brake on Bridgeport BOSS mills? I just had a guy climb up and get the part number printed on mine, D-15438-A-1, but according to the Bimba web site that's not a valid part number. It also not the Bridgeport part number shown in the parts manual, not that I expect to order from Hardinge. I know I could pull it off and measure it, but if someone has the part number, I won't have to take it apart until the replacement is in hand.

    Thanks,
    Dennis

    Got a picture of it? I got 2 torn apart rigid rams I can check to see if I have the part.

    Busy this morning. Let's see if I know how to attach a photo:

    Looks like a plain jane Bimba cylinder to me; can't figure out why it has a weird part number on it. With my luck I'll order one by size only to find it has weird threads.

    Might try calling Bimba, lots of co's change their P#'s every few years, gotta show customers your making something new I guess.

    Thanks. It's still working but blowing past the rod seal... which is the normal brake off state.

    I'll try giving Bimbo a call next week.
