Hi Evan,

I read in one of your replies to an earlier post by Elnino "a rip off??? that you "bought a well made MT3 to R8 adapter for $17.99 cdn"

I have checked their catalog for this item and cannot seem to find it, do you happen to have a part or item number?

Thanks for your time.

Evan and Gunny,

I would like to get a MT3 to R8 adapter also. This would help me with my lathe alot.

I don't think so. It would have a huge overhang.

Gunny and Evan,
I have several R* to MT2 and MT3 adapters. Which I barely use. Have the tail stock of my Jet lathe able to use R* would help me a lot, but it looks like I have to make that appliance.

Thanks for the try anyway.
