    So I have to implement some safety items for work, one of the action items is to enclose the ball screws on our Bridgeport series 1 mills, along with the Trak DPM's and open bed Miltronics.....so not one person that I know has ever got hung up by crawling UNDER a mill and their hand stuck in a ball screw. Has anyone ever even heard of a cover for a ball screw that is under a table???? Its a new one for me. Tim

    I would suggest a large welded cage around the machine. That way nobody could possibly get close enough to get hurt or get to the ON switch.:confused:

    We are going to kick it back as it affects accuracy and useable distance on the machine, not everything must be done every time there is an audit.
