Notes

Given that it's trivially easy to damage the arbor during installation and the horizontal cutters can be more dangerous than normal end mills, this requires authorization.

Because you have to move the ram in and out, the head must be trammed before your cuts and after you've reset the machine for vertical milling.

This isn't for heavy hogging of material; you can seriously damage the drive train of the Bridgeport by trying to take off too much material at once.

Equipment

  • Right angle milling head
  • 1" diameter arbor
  • Horizontal arbor support
  • Lots of spacers (Diameter? Lengths?)
