    Default Bridgeport Series 1 CNC Boss 6 Quill Question

    Hi, I recently added a CNC to my shop. I picked up a Series 1 fixed head cnc 1981 era. My son and I tore out the electric and electronics(?)We purchased the Gecko drives, ABB Micro VFD for the spindle with ABB brake Resistor etc.. Upon tear down of the mechnical side I found the upper most shaft for the pully above the quill severely damaged. I have not been able to find the head drawing. Wiring diagrams are every where.

    Would any one here have a link or drawing so I can pull this unit down andf order parts?

    Note, the back gear clutch parts are different from the manual machines. However, I was able to buy replacements for mine from High Quality Tools: Machine Shop Tools| Machine Accessories| Tooling Inserts

    Thank you for your reply and the link. I will make a new shaft however I am certain that along with this discovery there will be more issues to come.
