I've seen 'em. I just don't know where to buy 'em.

Can someone tell me where to buy these?

Thanks,
Dan

I got mine from KBC tools. They have to look, but they generally have them.

Sounds like a good lathe project!

Holy crap!!! $44.95 each for Jacobs brand from Enco!

I could use at least 2 and possibly 4 of them: MT2 to 3/8"-24; MT2 to 1/2"-20; MT3 to 3/8"-24; and MT3 to 1/2"-20.

If I learned how to thread on my lathe I could save about $160! (Cheapo MT2 and MT3 adapters with enough meat for the threaded part are less than $5 each.) You're right Carl, it's time to learn how to cut threads. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

I just made some for my Emco Maximat. They are easy to make.
