Boring bar holder

Post by ksierens » Thu Jan 02, 2014 12:44 pm

Just finished another project and thought I would share. I made a boring bar holder for my Craftsman 101.21200 (618) lathe, so now I can use 1/2", 5/8" or 3/4" boring bars. I modeled it after an old Armstrong holder.

Very pretty work!

Well done.

Nice work! I've seen those before.

And....copying an Armstrong must be good.

Good job! I always thought that style looked more rigid than others.
