I was looking at the other one.

Re: Parting tool holder

Grizzly and Busy Bee are related by blood so lots of what Busy Bee carry are also sold by Grizzly. They seem to have similar parting tools. https://www.grizzly.com/products/Grizzly-Insert-Type-Parting-Blade/T10376 https://www.grizzly.com/products/Grizzly-Parting-Tool-with-Carbide-Insert/T10012 Pete...

Re: Parting tool holder

Steve, Glanze makes a parting tool like you are after with a 20mm blade and it will fit the AXA size tool post holders. I can find it on their web site, but there are no prices, probably because they don't sell direct. All the vendors I can find are in Europe. Do you have a link for a US-based vend...

Re: Frustration...

Find yourself an old bronze one. Just the simple variable wide spray to stream one like your dad had when you were a kid.

You might have to replace the gasket and an o-ring, but it will work perfectly and outlive your grandchildren.

5mm parting blades

Here's some parting blades I couldn't push with the Atlas unless I put a rope around the chuck and pulled on it. These are 5mm wide and have the markings 151.2-25-50 on them, which appears to be a Sandvik designation: https://www.sandvik.coromant.com/en-us/products/pages/productdetails.aspx?c=151.2-...

Re: Parting tool holder

My all-time favorite cut-off tool arrangement is those built into the Hardinge collet lathes. The assembly is mounted above the spindle, right at the collet opening. This makes the cut-off operation the most rigid possible. Cuts like butter with a HSS tool. Wish I had one... RussN I thought about h...

Re: Parting tool holder

And these type of parting tools MUST be held horizontal. You can't use the angled holders, even if you could find one tall enough. The one I posted for the BXA toolholder is specially designed to take into account the angle of the toolholder. You would not be able to use a standard blade in the ang...

Re: Parting tool holder

Why not make one that fits your needs? On my mill, it would take an entire day. Not enough horsepower and I still need to set up a multiple pulley system to make variable speeds / torque. I'd rather be making stuff than making stuff to make stuff, especially when it can be bought. I just need to fi...

Re: Parting tool holder

That's because they are designed and made for has cut off blades. The angle gives you built in positive rake. There are actually blades for those that take GTN inserts, but the smallest holder they will fit is a BXA, probably because they would be too fragile when cut down enough to fit the AXA par...

Re: Parting tool holder

As for the inclined T blade holder. Mine sticks out 1/2" which will cover 99.5% of the parting I do. resetting when needed is not so complicated but for that I probably switch to the insert type tool, the blade is 1" deep and straight horizontal. The advantage of having the two that I have is one i...
