looking into this for friend ...

these are available cheap on ebay

only trouble is there are no (read nowt zero nothing zilch) ....16mm cutters on ebay ever ...
but there are bucket fulls of 1 inch bore cutters .

he's a tight arse and wont spend on new.so looking for alternatives.

there are also no 1" mt2 arbours on there either ......rarely ..and at a price when they are.

do you guys think its feasible to make spacers to take the above arbour so somehow, it accepts 1" inch bore cutters.

or at the last effort ...do a Stevenson weld and lathe job on them ...without distortion. !!!

all the best....mark
