This unique patented milling machine belt cover is made of durable cast aluminum. The hinged covers are sold in pairs for the right and left sides and are permanently attached to the machine. Spindle speed changes are done quickly and efficiently by simply pulling down the belt cover.
OSHA requires under 29 CFR 1910.219 that all mechanical power-transmission apparatuses on machinery that creates a hazard be covered up to a 7-foot level above the floor. The sheaves and belts on milling machines must be covered to meet this requirement.
The belt cover measures 11-inches wide by 2 3/4-inches tall by 3/8-inch thick and is made for Bridgeport model J.
