    Hi Geoff,

    An elegant design, beautifully machined. Trickier than it looks - I assumed there was a third saw cut underneath to provide flex. My eyeball engineering told me it wouldn't flex enough without this extra cut (even though I didn't see a way to make the cut) - so much for my intuition. Not sure my skills are up to copying it, particularly the square hole for the bit.

    Thanks for making the effort to take pictures during what must be a very busy time for you, moving is always a major drain on time and energy.

    Thanks. Geoff, for the pix. A well-done holder and good pix, too.

    The final scene of ACT II happened today. I'll post ACT II in full as a new thread by the end of the week.

    I, too, didn't have the knowhow/facilities to make a square hole so I bought a square hole sleeve and used (98% tin/2% silver) solder to fix it in place.

    Geoff-
    Did your new tool cure the chatter problems on your Atlas lathe?

    Now that you point it out, the sleeve is hinted at in one of your pictures.

    Nifty idea, I only considered making the slot with a saw but since an insert can be made in two parts and brazed in place this allows other approaches. Wish I'd thought of that...
