Bridgeport CNC Mill

Starting point for information related to the Bridgeport Torq-Cut 22 CNC milling machine. Very much a work in progress.

Start-up procedure

  • Power up CNC mill with power switch on back panel. Clockwise is "on", counterclockwise is "off".
Power Switch - from rear of CNC mill

Main power switch in the "on" position.

Power Switch - "on" position.

Main power switch in the "off" position.

Power Switch - "off" position.

The CNC mill requires compressed air so the shop air compressor has to be running.
If no one else needs compressed air, don't forget to turn off the compressor after you're done. There's a leak somewhere in the system.

  • Valve to shop compressed air at CNC mill.
Valve that connects CNC mill to shop air compressor.

Compressed air valve closed.

Valve that connects CNC mill to shop air compressor in the "closed" position.

  • Lift red air valve on CNC

Loading Program from USB stick

  • Insert USB stick in reader at back of mill behind spring-loaded door
