I want to expand my equipment with a cnc mill, currently have a cnc lathe. I located a Bridgeport Series I R2E4 but I do not even know how to check the machine out. I would like to power it up and run all axis and spindle.
1. Can anyone help with a quick step start-up process?
2. Is the main difference between the Series I and Series II the bed travel?
3. Excuse my ignorance but what Boss series is the R2E4?
4. What is the FIST log(I see this term on other posts)?
