    Default I use a precision ground 1” bar and 3/4” edge finder when setting up a tube to be mit


    I use a precision ground 1” bar and 3/4” edge finder when setting up a tube to be mitered on the mill. I have no digital readout on my Bridgeport and this is what has worked best for me over the years. After this I just bump it over .875 and it’s centered. This video was a correction to a previous one that had me using the edge finder incorrectly. Thanks to @duncancycles, @EnginCycles, @n_czernysz and others who enlightened me to the 900RPM magic number.#notamachinist #inanimatecarbonrod #feelingitout #edgefinder #precisionground #bridgeport #millingmachine #chapmancycles
