Features

  • 2 Bolt patterns for barrier guards: Select when ordering. The 2.5" square bolt pattern (MG-2) chip guard fits the Bridgeport brand and 95% of other milling machines.
  • The mounting plates are slotted outwards to accommodate slight differences in machine bolt pattern. The 2.5" square pattern can work with up to 2.75" or 70mm square.
  • Part # MG-2T is a 3.0 x 3.5" bolt pattern. It will fit TRAK DPM3 milling machines and some other brands.  See the mounting plate photo for more info.
  • Available with or without a safety interlock switch. Select when ordering. Safety switches are rated to only 2 amps and require some form of motor control to adapt to your 3-phase machine.  Safety interlock retrofit can be purchased and easily added to existing guards later on.

Love this Machine Guard

Our experience here at JM with the machine guard is wonderful. Employees are happy with this as it functions better than the skimpy one, we had prior to finding this one. Love it! #Safety Specialist

Great functionality and fit!

The communication was great before the order and definitely helped me selecting the correct product for my old mill. The guard bolted right up and works great!

Simple and Effective

These are robust guards, and the only ones I have found that the machinist will actually use! I especially like the different mounting options available. The head mounts are by far the easiest and don't get in the way of the head or table moving around.
