We repair and rebuild Bridgeport heads, along with taking trade-ins. For our head refurbishments, we inspect and repair any issues in the quill housing and upper housing. We will replace all the belts, bearings bushings, and sliding keys in the upper head. Replace any other required parts, ensure all quill power-down feed components are working correctly, and give the head a new paint job.  Please note; that spindle bearings are only changed if required or requested.
