Model FB and model FBB comparison table

Both guards use the same screens/shields. The difference is the arm type where the FBB has a third interlock switch and enables the user to lift the guard, whereas the FB does not. Please see the chart below to see a comparison.

Screen sizing information

 

Select a screen size that will fit the machine without hindering operations. Take into account levers, control handles and various obstacles on the left and right side of the machine. The arm interlock switch has an adjustable backlash to move the screen a few inches to allow access to the spindle lever without activating the switch. For most Bridgeport type machines a FB/FBB 350h240CM is suitable. Every screen below fits on both FB and FBB arms and are interchangeable. If a screen does not fit your machine a replacement screen can be sent.
