    It doesn't appear that my bijur is lubricating. I can pull the lever and it pumps, but doesn't seem to be running automatically. Is the machine supposed to apply power to the bijur only when the...

    After jogging the table back and forth to get all the side covers removed, and sopping up a lake of old way oil (which had been obscuring the manifold), I uncovered it. It is about 10" in from the...

    New to me Bridgeport TC22

    During pandemic I bought a few "new" machine tools, including 1997 Bridgeport TC22. I was hoping to tap into some other owners here as I dig through it. I've been slowly working through servicing it...
