    TGTool was clearly too modest to post this link to a most informative thread about those micrometer boring insters:

    I can beat that one. I used them, or something very similar, circa 1958

    Well, you're not claiming a gloat or telling us how much you paid, but those cutters are neat enough that I've got to say it...YOU SUCK!

    You can make your own heads they just screw in at 45؛. I have made a few. And still have one in my kit.

    Second row from bottom in your insert pics are KNUX inserts, left handed and right handed inserts. Great ones for really removing material and still widely available, though I prefer something else.

    The cutters in the first picture are DeVlieg microbore inserts. Used in a boring bar they give you fine adjustment control. There are two different dials though the threads are all the same. One assumes the insert is at right angles to the centerline and the other assumes an angle. Can't remember the angle exactly but they change the number of graduations, making it an even number, and then calculate the appropriate angle so it's a little bit odd.

    You can still get them, along with replacement dials, screws, etc. and different end shapes depending on the intended task.

    I've seen specialized boring bars manufactured to turn multiple diameters simultaneously, presumably for production jobs.

    they are handy too keep around the machines ..they wont wonder off to be used for anything else.




    and shown here ...,are half the quantity of inserts i found in the same box.
