  • Sickbags required, gloat in progress.

    OK unashamed gloat. (well maybe a little ashamed )

    A little while ago I put up some pics of some full size 0.5" cal dummy bullets I'd made as a favour. The person concerned has a mate who had some excess tooling and I was thought of as the lucky recipient. Here's what was in the box:





    OK there is a little rust on the 2-4-6 blocks etc etc, but am I complaining, I don't think so! Some things I've never seen before including the long series drills and the small collet chuck, if anyone can identify what flavour the collets are, I'd appreciate it.

    Lottery ticket required this week just incase my full quota of yin is not yet up before I'm back to mainly yang!

                Direct links to pics they have come out rather large on my screen.

                Hope this works

                  Well done

                  Congrats Al.

                  You've done very well indeed - most if not all of that stuff is very usable or practically brand new.

                  Anything that needs sharpening is relatively easy on a tool & cutter grinder. Most else that needs a bit of a clean-up will come up very well.

                  Its nice to see a "good turn" done - and appreciated.

                  Very tiddley.

                    They look like double angle collets. BTW, nice beaver.

                      I see something like this happen and I get reminded that the best thing about life is just showing up. You never know what's going to happen. Nice tooling and congrats.

                        Thank-you for the steer I think you're correct.

                        They are the 200 series from comparison to the size in the link.

                          DickDastardly40,
                          They are indeed DA collets (dual angle). They look to be about the size of DA 200 or DA 100. The collet holder can be used in a mill or lathe. Jay

                            Wow! Nice score - always neat when someone reciprocates so generously. Sort of restores one's faith in humanity

                            If thats a Best Test DTI I spy, its worth a good little bit to say nothing of everything else. Personally I'm a big sucker for drill bits, for some reason. I love getting sets of drill bits...
