More CCMT lathe tools

Some more CCMT lathe tools, now I think I have the entire 5/8″ shank “collection” – left hand, neutral, chamfer and boring bar (3/4″). I have commercial right hand tools and 1/2″ boring bar.

It was bugging me that I couldn’t figure out how to make these without clamping more than once. Then I got the idea that I could use the insert corner relief as a reference point and if I drilled it all the way through, a mounting and reference point. So I made the set to test the idea and it worked great.

  1. Great put up, very informative. I wonder why the other experts of this sector don’t realize this. You should continue your writing. I am confident, you have got a huge readers’ base already.
