    Default bridgeport tilt worm gear measurement

    I have a supermax step pulley head that is missing the worm gear which tilts the head. I know supermax does lots of stuff different (i.e. parts don't swap) from genuine bridgeport stuff. With that being said can anyone point me in the direction of dimensions of the worm so I can measure and see if I can order the readily available bridgeport part or if I need to source the supermax part. Or if anyone knows if the worm is a direct fit. Thanks!

    Barry said that it most likely wouldnt fit, but that chances are you could replace that gear and the one in the knuckle with a BP one and theyll mesh.

    We do have a box of Supermax parts, if you wanted to call and talk to him about it, he can see if he has one. 800-285-5271

    The base that I have is actually a Jet jtm-1050. I would most likely replace both gears just to have everything in there fresh. I know its an unholy union of import clone parts.


    Thanks, I will give a ring at some point.

    Measure your center distance. That's what counts.
