    Not bad, Glenn!

    It looks a little rough (rust on some surfaces) but the saddle ways look to be in decent shape, and they are chrome - a big bonus. Variable speed head, too.

    Re: bridgeport

    The rust you see came fom sitting on my trailer last week. I have it in the shop now until I take it down the farm at thanksgiving . I sure would like to get it painted before it goes down but I don`t want to rush it. Is it hard to separate the ram from the base so it is not so top heavy? My son will be running it down.Traffic thru the DC area on 95 is always interesting.Thanks, Glenn

    No - it's quite easy, actually. Separating the ram from the turret is just a bit more involved than pulling the entire turret off. I would do that instead, but either one is four bolts.

    If you pull the turret, there is a cast iron "spider" inside that could fall down and break, so watch out for that. You can access it through the door on the side. It won't fall if the ram is pointed straight ahead - there are four bosses inside that will capture it, but have a look inside so you know what you are up against.

    The ram is about 250 pounds and the turret is pretty close to 200. Combine that with the head and you will have some weight to rig.

    Ok, next question. My variable speed cover has a vent on the top of it and it looks like it is full of dirt. I would like to take it off to clean. How hard is that to do ? Thanks Glenn.

    Well, this is where I am going to be useless to you. I have never been into the variable speed portion of a BP.
