Milling 101 – Bridgeport Mill Tool Authorization


** Intro to Machining is a prerequisite class. You have to complete the Intro to Machining class before you can take the Milling 101 Class. **

In this class you will receive basic hands on experience in operating a Bridgeport Series I J-Head milling machine. During this 3 to 4 hour class, Billy will go over the basics of tramming the head of the mill, tramming the vise, edge finding, work holding and setup, drilling , side milling, and top/end milling operations. You will also learn the basics of the DRO (digital read out), the table power feed, and basic care of the mill. This is a tool authorization class and once completed you will be authorized to use the milling machine and Knox Maker members will receive a key need to operate the mill. Intro to Machining is a prerequisite class.

There will be a fee of $24.96 for members.. There will be a maximum of 4 spots of this class, and a minimum of 2 tickets must be sold.


This class is broken up into two components, an online class, and a one-on-one hands on part. Please be sure to RSVP for the Online portion of the class, and select your individual time slot for your one-on-one. Both parts are mandatory in order to be authorized to use the Bridgeport Mill. The online portion doesn’t have a maximum participate limit (so your welcome to sit in for review, or so you can do the one-on-one later on) , however the, one-on-one is required for authorization.
