 Bed Modification and DRO Application

This is an AMS specialty. Machining of the bed for scale clearance using a Bridgeport Series 1 headstock and a single point fly cutting tool.





The scale is resting in its newly machined slot.




This is a picture of the LB scale being test fitted for clearance before removing the Bridgeport milling head.
