Following the recent bridgeport cleaning, there are quite a lot of chips migrating into the bridgeport’s Y Axis gib slot and the knee.
A good way to prevent this is to make some way covers out of fabric reinforced neoprene, as many have done:
Poking around on McMaster it looks like material cost will be less than $60. I’d be happy to put it together and donate the materials, but we’d probably need to drill/tap some holes in the machine’s castings. @Team_Machine_Shop, perhaps we should gather around the Bridgeport sometime between now and the committee meeting and have a look before anything is done.
What say y’all?
