  • any thoughts on this QCTP??

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ht_1531wt_1004 I cant complain on the price, it's a wedge style, has the holders I want. I am not sure what dia the BB holder is, Mine at 0.500" I hope they are not .750". If they are, no big deal, I can get another set of BB's that are .750"

    Thanks in advance Keith

      I doubt there is any difference between that QCTP and this one from CDCO other than the price;

      As far as the boring bar holder, they are sleeved and smaller sleeves can be shop made to accomodate smaller diameter boring bars.

        I just ordered one from CDCO. I was holding off from ordering as I have been getting 50/50 reports about him shipping on time. I was assured he had them in stock so I'm crossing my fingers. Keith

          I have the equivalent to the BXA on a Harrison M300, its a bit small even though the supplied Dickson type is a type 2.
          Spare holders for these dont break the bank but need to hold 1" square the largest.

          BXA is known as 250 series by other brand names and the holders 250-201,2,3,4 etc they hold up to 650" though 5/8" nominal. Can easilly be milled out for 3/4".

          Whats it fitted to?

            My lathe is a 13x40 Enco. Nothing special but it's mine. You can see some pics of it here http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/showthread.php?t=49331 Keith

              Well, I can say with certainty that you could save an unnecessary fee http://www.tools4cheap.net/products.php?cat=9 (Bottom of page--$100) Tools4Cheap has been discussed here before. It is a one guy shop who is a straight shooter. I have read that he tries to get the "better" of the bottom for his import selection. I don't know how much of a difference that makes, but whatever.

                    Well, that will be big news to Jeff. BTW, they may be Chicom but Jeff took a big chance having reproduction SB parts cast and finished.

                      I'm not knocking the parts or the place they are made. I was drunk posting from the bar last night. Sorry guys. Keith

                          I don't want to hijack this thread but since he's got his answer already I thought I'd just add this about Jeff Beck's www.tools4cheap.net services.

                          This is a set of Heavy 10 (double tumbler model) metric transposing and change gears that he had manufactured, presumably in China. You could look from now till hell freezes over for these on fleabay and when you do find them you will probably be out bid.

                              Many, many people have made their BXA dovetail toolholders from alloy steel or 1040 and heat treated them. Some even made their holders from mild steel and a few from aluminum(!!!).

                              Making a dozen new tool holders isn't hard, just tedious. The only dimension you need to sweat is the pin measurement over the dovetails.

                              You can ge a length of rectangular alloy steel from an on-line supplier for abour double the going cost or you can find a local supplier. If there's a local shop specializing in press brake dies they may have an alloy steel drop that's just about right. A 50 lb length of the right stuff should cost you about $80 plus a saw cut.

                              If you don't have a mill to make tools holders on - well - it's either depend on the kindness of a local guy who has one or buy the tool holders you need where you can.
