How do I move in Bridgeport?
Simply so, how much does a Bridgeport mill way?
A standard Bridgeport-style vertical knee mill will weigh about 2,000 to 3,000 lbs, depending on when it was made and what options it has. To move it, there should be a threaded hole on top of the ram that's a hoist point.
Additionally, how tall is a Bridgeport mill? A Bridgeport machine requires a surprising amount of clearance in the surrounding space to operate, due to the awkward projection of its components and the ways they articulate. The clearance height for the J-head model is 83-1/2".
In this way, how do you move a vertical mill?
Simple Steps to Move a Vertical Milling Machine
- Lift your forks and spread them to just fit around the column.
- Move in until the forks have extended past the Ram.
- Place rubber pads or wood between the forks and the ram.
- Put oak or solid wood timbers between mill and the back of the forks.
- Run a cargo strap around the mill and attach to the mast.

9500 lbs. sounds a little light to me even if its a manual machine for a true 20" machine. My DMG CTX 410 weighs in at 12,300 lbs. including the chip conveyor.
