View Full Version : Bridgeport Rapid 8 power drawbar

08-21-2010, 02:05 PM
Anybody running on of these on a J head ( step pulley)? I bought it used and need to adapt it to the mill's belt housing. It looks like the belt housing needs to be drilled and tapped for some kind of adapter between the drawbar base plate and the belt housing.
However, I don't know where it is safe to drill the belt housing. A pic or sketch would be a great help.

It's a conventional pneumatic drawbar using the 3/8" impact wrench, etc. except the cover is marked "Bridgeport Rapid 8". Thanks in advance.
