  • Friday afternoon project Pic.

    The other day at work the head guy in CNC lathe dept, needed a gage made. He came to the tool room with a piece of metal said it was 4140 pre heat treated. Wanted me to turn it down and cut hex on each end for go No go gage . Threw it in lathe and commenced to turn down . The insert just went away ,put another in same thing. I turned around ti him said this aint no dam 4140 he said I dont care make me a gage from it its all I got. So away I went made his gage in about 2 hours and had piece of this hard stuff left . Layed it on my tool box and went back to doing what I had been working on.
    Got to thinking about it later and me think make a nice shank for some kind of insert cutting tool. I remember a while back some one made a nice cutter for dovetails . I turned around and their in the tool rack on my bench was a 45؛ cutter. Me not having one at home Think`s Ok that is what I am going to make. I finished up job I was on and nothing to do I hoped in the lathe and blanked it out. Then boss came in with enough work for a few days , so Friday i brought the blank home to finish the mill work. The metal milled real well buy a bitch to turn.
    So I get off at 1:00 on Fridays about 2:30 I start to machine blank to fit inserts 3/8 IC square with 10؛ side rake and 6/32 taped holes for flat head screws. hour and a1/2 later finished and here it is .








    Any questions will be answered, hope you like. Sorry the pictures did not come out any better

    Hi,

    Very nice work Lane! A 45 degree carbide bevel cutter is a pretty useful tool. Yours looks like it should cut sweet.

    If you think you understand what is going on, you haven't been paying attention.

      Was over at Lanes this afternoon for the Sun visit and saw this little tool ....its a shame the pics didnt turn out better, that cutter is a real jewel, his usual flawless machining.
      If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something........
