    Default Info/Manual Wanted, Textron Bridgeport Series 1 CNC

    I recently purchased a Textron Bridgeport Series 1 CNC mill. I have read a few of the posts here about such machines. My current plan is to replace the controls with a newer system. I have not run the serial number yet, but I believe the machine was built in the early 80's.

    Any information you may have would be greatly appreciated. I have yet to locate a manual for the machine, though I have found a manual for the manual version of the mill. If anyone knows where I can find a manual that would awesome.

    (If there is a better place for this, please feel free to move the post)

    There's the mill as it sits in it's non-permanent place in the shop. I was pleasantly surprised to find the flaking under all the gunk.
    I'm assuming those are 8-wire steppers.

    I have the same machine and it was easy to wire in a breakout board to run it on a PC with Mach3, using the original steppers and drives. You can probably find a full build log somewhere here or on the zone
