Re: What is this CAT40 tool?

I guess I’ll relegate it to the Head Scratcher box

Re: What is this CAT40 tool?

I would think an endmill holder with an OD that large would have a fairly large hole for the endmill. Certainly bigger than the 1/2" slot.

Re: What is this CAT40 tool?

Earlgo, that is something I've not seen before.
I can see where this tool may be part of such.

And I guess that make it a NT40?

Re: What is this CAT40 tool?

Looks to me like a nmtb 40 or nt 40 definitely not cat 40. But the big hole is just there because someone made that flycutter holder from a regular endmill holder it seems. They are cheap and you could easily make a rigid flycutter from it. I knew it was 40 taper, but I don't know how to tell them ...

Re: What is this CAT40 tool?

Interesting thought.
It would drill a shallow hole, at best

What is this CAT40 tool?

I got this in a batch of other pieces. I'm trying to figure out what it is. It sort of looks like a flycutter, but not like any I've seen. The two set screws are an inch apart and oppose the large threaded hole at either side, as though they are to adjust the cant of something as it pivots on the la...

Re: Smoke generator

You can always get one of those halloween fog machines. They do require 110V but you may be able to run a small one from an inverter.

Re: Getting Older.

If it's over 40 lbs I'm not lifting it. In my shop I have a central 1-Ton chain hoist. Off to the side, over the workbench area is a 1/2-Ton chain hoist. On my big heavy "dirty work" steel table is a Skyhook rated at 500-lbs. I can move the table or relocate the skyhook to several places where I hav...

Re: Jet 1236P

The clamp deal depends on a groove cut in the OD of the register. I looked at the Logan and. South Bend today and neither had enough material to do this. But honestly, I cannot recall the last time I needed a lathe to run in reverse. I do remember once I hit reverse by accident and got hurt. I no lo...

Re: Jet 1236P

The G9249 had a simple chuck lock. The collar of the backing plate was drilled for two clamps that hooked the plate to the spindle. Probably could be retrofit pretty easily if there is room in there.

Re: Jet 1236P

Those old Jet and Enco 10X and 12X lathes from the 1980s and 1990s are stout machines. I have had 3 so far, all with hardened beds and accurate as heck. For parts, Grizzly G9249 was made up until a few years ago, many parts fit those old machines.
