Hi everybody! I have been a lurker here on and off for a few years. There is a great wealth of knowledge here and I would like some input on the direction I should take concerning my first Bridgeport. I wasn't looking for a mill as I already have a nice Brown and Sharpe vertical. But, while looking at some other machines for sale, I wound up buying a 1965 Bridgeport with a ton of accessories. There are many threads discussing the process of recomissioning or rebuilding machines of this vintage which are generally well used with significant wear. My problem is exactly the opposite. There are almost no signs at all that this machine has ever been used. After a close inspection, my guess is that the machine might have at most a few hours of light use. The belt pulleys don't show any signs of being run. I can't find marks on the original Bridgeport vise jaws. There is some surface rust on exposed metal, but it should clean up fairly easily. One hand sized area on the table is a bit worse, but I don't think it is enough to affect operation. I am trying to decide between flushing oil (or some kind of solvent followed by oil) through all the ways and the head and just running it, or disassembling and cleaning out any old gummed up oil before running it. I don't have a good idea of the likelihood of the old lubricants causing problems. I look forward to the replies, even the almost sure admonition to post pics. I will do that when I can, but right now it's under a tarp until I make space in my shop.
