View Full Version : Need 7" Maximat lathe cut-off tool holder

11-30-2013, 11:22 PM
I have an Emco 7" Maximat metal lathe that uses a standard 4-way tool holding block (same as the one on the 10" Maximat lathe) on the compound feed and I need a cut-off tool holder and cut-off tool that with fit. The mounting block is made to hold up to a 1/2" square cutting tool. I don't see anything that fits. Any suggestions?

Thanks! I saw those but they all appeared in the photos to be too large. Now that I read the specs I see the size. They need to do something about the photography. "If brains were shoes I would be barefoot all the way to my knees!" (an old saying by Pogo).

I can relate to that sentiment, being a visual person. The "floating" machine or piece of tooling in a catalog is really hard to relate to real life! Even when the dimensions are in hand, I've been known to draw out the profile on a piece of paper to give myself some relatable scale. *just a word of warning on that first Grizzly item I posted. There is conflicting dimensions in the catalog (9/16") and the online item page (1/2"). Miht want to check with customer service on that one or pick another from the list. Also, for really small stuff, AR Warner makes this one:
