  • Novel way of parting off

    Saw this for sale on bay:

    I guess it's for use with collets. Seems like a good idea to mount the slide directly to the headstock, rather than the bed - anyone seen one of these before?

    All of the gear, no idea...

    Yup. Had them on our little process lathes at the old place.

    Once you load up the lathe tail stock turrent with tooling and add 2 turning/forming bits on the crosslide, you have to use this for cutoff. It is normally used in a production type shop, but it would work great for the HSM.

    Civil engineers build targets, Mechanical engineers build weapons.

      Siliar to the Hardinge style. Heck it may be a rip-off of Hardinge's or the other way around for all I know. Or from somebody els'es design. But they ony work with collets. Also they have to set up just right or they don't work very well as they can have a tendency for the tool to grab. But when set-up properly the worker slicker than snot.
      Forty plus years and I still have ten toes, ten fingers and both eyes. I must be doing something right.
