View Full Version : Bridgeport Series 1 Varidisc Head Bushes/Bearings

09-27-2012, 06:15 AM
My 88 Varidisc has a noisy head so it's time to repair it :( does anyone have sizes for the plastic (Delrin?) bushes & keys that I need to replace? as I intend to make my own, I know I can buy them ($54 from USA vendors) but here in rip off Britain the only UK retailer of aftermarket bushes charges 19 ($30ish) for one bush.

I understand the Varidisc roller bearings are pretty much standard items but dont seem to have standard part numbers if anyone has the "real" bearing numbers I would be grateful.

I have read quite a few posts on the subject but none give definitive dimensions sadly.

Any and all help appreciated.
