Tramming A Milling Machine - Square A Spindle On J Head Bridgeport Mill - Pro Tram - Edge Technology




What do you think about this video?

build wright: you can use just one dial indicator on a single extended length of bar to achieve the same result-----still got to rotate it though

arnie6972: subscribing..i got mine and life is so easier because of Pro Tram System

purplelighswitch: Also if you have a machine that drags , if you practice this technuiq it will adventually fix itself.

Andrei Quinton: if its edge technology who made this product then I will surely buy one. I always trusted them when it comes to quality

Lance Woolie: 100 bucks

donminickfoster: Hey! I am interested with your product. Can I order online?

JASCOBAR: This seems too obvious a practical instrument that it was not made in WWII and before.

firstbaldwin: THANKS for proving / demonstrating what I have said for years. Bridgeports are NOT not really precision milling machines, they are UTILITY milling machines, IF REAL precision is needed the machine work is done on jig bore where the ways are bigger than the bed, not the other way around like on a bridgeport mill.

Aimee Smith: I am satisfied with Pro Tram System. A million thanks for the great product

purplelighswitch: seeing how atleast one of you are in school at this time. Thought i would give you a little tip on milling machines especially J type bridgeports. "Never mill anything with the Quill extended more than 2" this is what causes the Quill to start dragging and there for the return spring doesn't work.

TehkNinja: I freaking hate tramming in a Bridgeport. I spent an hour tramming in a machine and I found out every time I raised the knee to reset 0 the table slid sideways....

jericho8041: do you deliver worldwide?

جام احمدي: اعجبني

Ronnie Underhill: Readjust the Knee gibs. Usually on the left as you look at the machine next to main casting of the mill. An easy way to check squarness of the head without checking it with any indicators, is to take a razor sharp endmill, or sharp fly cutter and take a cut off of a aluminum piece. If you see a crosshatch pattern behind the cutter, the head is square. If you see a pattern that's not crosshatched you need to tram it in.. If any gibs need tweaking do it now. Then tram. Thanks folks

rickybh: Got my Pro Tram System in the mail today and it took me only about 3 minutes to align the head of my milling machine. Thanks very much! :)

Aldo Tucker: All I can say is that this is a must have.

sevenhornets: I bought mine a month ago and it has been the best $100 I've spent in a long time. Fast easy and accurate.

arthur kelly: I must have this!!!

normangraf: how much does it cost?

Hunter333444: I have one I like it very fast to use and not too expensive thank you

John Gibson: I am now posting this on my dads facebook wall for him to be able to watch this.

Ninetail Hinata: Taking machining I right now at my school. This would be nice to use. lol

benedictmills20: where can I leave my review?

James Lichtenberg: Great Idea ! This is so much easier than using The bulky EZ tram ! very simple concept.

jacksonlefteye: lock the X and Y?

Rolando Esbueno: I am retired tool maker after 42 years and I made one of these at least 30 years ago! make your own and OH!, remember to tighten your table locks too!

bozo28able: I think this is a waste of money. I got by with out one for 40 years and counting. An indicol and a test indicator works just fine.

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
