Derived from the abilities thread.
Even though you have been doing the same job most of your life it can always spring up the odd surprise.
Part gloat but no pics as yet, mislaid the camera card.
No not really a gloat as I bought these bits fair and square. Answered an advert for some cutting tools and amongst them were some morse taper reamers and some morse drills.
Yes I know got millions of morse drills but did anyone know they made drills to drill Morse holes ?
Well hands up because here's one guy that didn't. Often read in books about drilling a series of stepped holes then boring the taper, never read where it said :-
"Got to rack 5, bin 3 and select the correct morse taper drill with morse taper shank. "
Genuinely made as Morse drills and not a drill ground down because the lands and gullets are tapered and black original finish. Shank on this one clearly states No 3 Morse taper.
Got a No#1, No#2 and a No#3 in the job lot but the reamers started at MT#0 and went to MT#4 in roughing and finishing.
