  • I made a super simple box tool

    Last week someone posted that they wanted to make a small box tool. And they did not want to use a mill to do it. Got me thinking and here is what I made. I took a piece of stock and turned one end to .75 dia, then drilled other end .75 dia about an inch or so deep. As only turning down 1/2 inch stock to see if it would work. I planned to locate on od of stock to support the material. I wanted to use brass bolts to run on od as support but couldn't
    find where I had put them so I just used plain bolts for trial. I drilled one hole
    .25 dia to hold a round carbide cutter that I ground end down half way to get it on center. Then turned tool 90 degrees round in vice and moved this next hole a bit closer to front of tool so it would be in front of cutter. Then turned tool another 90 degrees and drilled it as second support. Then I tapped these last 2 holes 1/4 20. Then I drilled and tapped a 1/4 20 hole over the cutter bore to hold carbide round cutter in place. Jim
