Chris Chris' Tips
T-slot cleaners are designed for Bridgeport mills. It takes a few seconds on a grinder to reduce the size of the "T" to fit the slots on the mini mill.Combined drills and countersinks, commonly called center drills, are used to produce a center hole on a workpiece for turning between centers. Center drills are also used to start drilled holes. Because they are very stiff they don't have a tendency to wander.


Here are the sizes of center drills.
Number Body Dia. Drill Dia. Length
1 1/8" 3/64" 1 1/4"
2 3/16" 5/64" 1 7/8"
3 1/4" 7/64" 2"
4 5/16" 1/8" 2 1/8"
5 7/16" 3/16"  2 3/4"
