    Click image for larger version  Name:	20210111_110643.jpg Views:	2 Size:	2.99 MB ID:	1925107 This is a German UPA -1 boring and facing head. One of the nicest to look at, but my Hauser jig bore head will hold .0001 all day on the Hauser. What are you using ??

    Only have the little 2.25" Bridgeport #1 head. Nothing to write home about, or take a photo of, but it makes round holes when I need it and to the accuracy I require.

      20" Boring head, takes a 2" dia boring bar. Made by Summit.
      Please forgive the disgusting pic. It was before I took it apart and re-worked it.
      I changed how the gears work and the lubrication system.
      Do I win ??

        Doozer, you do win.

        Just a 2 and 3" shars boring heads. Haven't tried the 3 yet. They work well for me. I'd love a Wolhaupter or similar someday for facing.

          3 inch Wuhanium set. The head works fine but the brazed in inserts aren't worth a crap. Does anyone have a part number for the inserts so I can braze something decent in?

                  it's not the carbide that's the problem, it's that they're not sharpened (either at all or properly). Get a 5 pack of diamond dremel disks from HF and give them the clearance and rake they need and they'll cut just fine.

                        On the left is a 2" Chandler Duplex (EBay purchase) doing the bearing face on the Nanzy hit 'n Miss engine and on the right is the George Thomas design I built many years ago. I got lucky with the build as it performs really well. The dial is a Sherline bought from their parts dept.

                        Also have a 3" generic that does the job but doesn't exactly put a smile on one's face.

                          I have one of these APT boring heads. It's not bad, but the gib strip is very sensitive.

                            How does that bar cut with the cutting tip so far ahead of center ? ?

                              Throw the balls away. It gets better.
