Picked this cutter up for pennies a while back, finally got it unstuck so I could modify the shank. I had never seen one with apparently factory internal threads.

I assume this is due to the small diameter. It is about 40mm OD.

Don't think size is the issue since dovetail cutters can be had much smaller.Maybe it's a hold over from a time before integral shank dovetail cutters?

Brown&Sharpe list 60* cutters with threaded bores and threaded arbors for same in their 1935 Catalog. Available if 3/8-24 and 1/2-20 left hand threads.

This makes sense as it is a dovetail cutter and cannot have interference on the flat face.

Much smaller and it would be integral shank.

And this one is RH threads, but they are correct to be tightened by cutting force. And tight they were.

Inherited two of these in the original boxes from my dad.

It's been eons since I saw boxes like these with the metal tabs that you bend over to keep the lids on, Thought they are cool:

The ones I have are branded B&S. Came in a tool box from an old mentor and likely from the 50's judging by the boxes. ( metal reinforced/staple type corners too )
