I was thinking of cutting in half an appropriately diameter hex rod to use as a shim under the boring bar. What are you guys using? Thanks.
Just use a regular turning holder, with a shim over or under as needed. I have modified several of the plain turning holders with a small V groove ,like the Aloris turning/boring holders. Easy to do with a carbide end mill.Or make a split sleeve to increase the 1/4" dia. to a suitable size.
