What do you expect they're owned by MSC.

Uh, Enco doesn't print their catalog and I suspect build the website either. I don't have a current catalog but the site probably is a copy of the page from it.

Six jaw independent chuck, that would be a first... and a pain to dial in.

Today's equivilant of a typesetting error. About as exciting as soggy bran flakes.

It doesn't seem to be much worse than all the left handed drills, milling cutters and taps that MSC/J&L keep trying to sell me in their monthly fliers...

Funny, I didn't know there was a place called far. And if there were, wouldn't it be capitalized?

The really sad part of this picture is that the guard at the gate is for all intents and purposes, UNARMED.
He may have a sidearm on that belt, but if he does, the odds heavily favor there not being a round in the chamber, nor even a loaded magazine in the grip. As a former MARINE ('66-74") and Federal Agent ('75-2005) , I find this absolutely appalling.

Typos are hardly news, but it does pay to proofread as you go - witness my taps, here:

This wasn't at the gate. This guy was at the parking lot, well inside the base by about a mile.

The guys at the gate were well armed (on the outside, don't know about anything chambered).

They had metal detectors, wands etc at the racetrack entrance. I got in with a folding knife in a bag.

Well, they don't say TPI, now do they? Perhaps one is 20 threads per cm or a 0.020" pitch.

I ran into that once before and it was a nice OSG tap. Turned out it wasnt wrong, it was for a heli-coil and was listing the heli coil resultant thread size, not that actual thread size of the tap.

A Heli-Coil tap usually says Heli-Coil or STI which stands for Spiral Thread Insert on the shank.

I always thought it was Steel Thread Insert. Spiral and Thread seem redundant. :)

Ha! The google indicates they are Screw Thread Inserts.

How's that for redundant?

In any case, helicoil taps have the same TPI as the resultant repaired hole will have.

That is just 1/4-20 fine thread and 1/4-20 coarse thread. Don't you know how to read your taps?

I have never seen or heard of a two jaw chuck either. Is it for flat stock? Or do the jaws have a crescent in them to grip round things?

Mine has V-jaws for gripping square stock across the diagonal corners. It also has replaceable top jaws so custom jaws can be made for most any shape.

I don't have a current catalog but the site probably is a copy of the page from it.



Yep you're right, page 436 of the big catalog has that identical error. The comical part of that is it's on the "Introduction to lathe chucks" page that's supposed to be an educational page describing the different types and chucks and the terms used.
