Ohhhh, is that the newest form of Mach (4?)?

Is that why I see characters in the window and the background is different colors?

Thanks,
Dave

Well not got much  done to the Bridgeport, have a couple of small issues with the controller I will be using and I am waiting for them to get sorted before I take the panel down and fit it into the cabinet. Had thought about doing it anyway but really better if its at home as I will be able to test it out here during the evening.

Did get the control panel mounted and wiring run, cut the arm from some 4mm Alu sheet and welded it up.

Oh also got some new spindle bearings from eBay, still in sealed bags and only £34 delivered :)

Hopefully will get them fitted tomorrow.

Nice work

Is this still using Dovetails and leadscrews or has the slides and screws been upgraded too?

It was originally a BOSS 6.1 so has chromed ways and ballscrews.

Got the electrical panel fitted into the cabinet today. Wired up single phase just to test I had the wiring to the buttons and screen correct, next job will be to route the motor cables and fit and wire limits and run a heavier mains cable to the mill and it will be almost done.
