  • Very minor tool gloat!

    I want to make a QCTP for my old lathe.

    So I bought some dovetail cutters on Ebay.

    Eight cutters in package. They all have a 1 inch shank and vary in size except for one smaller cutter.

    There are two with a 136 degree face that I have no idea what you would do with them.

    Under 50 dollars for the bunch. They are new.

      How does the threaded shank on the cutters work?

        The collett has a thread on the bottom that the cutter threads into.

          Nice! So what's that work out to cost per cutter, and how much of a savings over buying each one individually as needed?

              That's a fairly substantial gloat-to-cost-savings ratio!

              Not "$100 for a zillion drills and taps HA HA WOO!" substantial but still very good.

                I believe these cutters go in something like this...

                  It's not a minor gloat. This can bring you a "You suck!" award.

                  Congrats!
