27-Oct-04 Here we see Bill at the controls bringing the frame thicknesses a lot closer the blueprint specifications. This was the first serious amount of work the Bridgeport had performed to date (3 hours continuous running) and I found the upper pulley housing got very hot, but the motor and head were running quiet. Later I found a bearing preload adjustment and loosened it up slightly, and it has run cool ever since.
