Bridgeport Torqcut 22 Rebuild and Oak Retrofit

Post by AshG »

So i bought a Bridgeport Torq Cut 22. I got it from Marty on here (martyscncgarage). His intention was always to convert it to OAK but then he went and found an atrump machine with centroid already on it. To cut a long story short we worked out a deal then i had to figure out how to get the machine 1800miles from Arizona to Georgia. That was a real fun exercise! lets just say i have a greater respect for logistics planners and riggers after the whole affair.

I'm not sure if you guys are interested or if its even ok on centroids forum (i am converting it to oak after all) but my plan is to pretty much disassemble the whole machine, clean it up repaint the enclosure repair and rebuild all the major components, put it all back together make sure it still works then convert to centroid oak.

I'm already knees deep into the disassembly and cleanup of the machine if anyone is interested i can start posting some pictures up.

i made a couple of videos and stuck them on the you tube if anyone is interested.

Any updates on this build? I'm in the process of cleaning up my Torq-Cut 22 for an eventual retrofit to Oak. Perhaps we can compare notes :)

thanks,

Jim

Ash has a photo album, he did STRIP the entire machine down, inspected it, rebuilt replaced anything that needed repair, and has it back up and running on the original control. Their first child kinda got in the way of things. Baby girl already has dad wrapped around her little finger. :D
