  • Wondering what it is




    Got it in a box of hold down clamps for my mill, but the guy said it fit a southbend. I don't think it fits my southbend, anybody have any clues?

      Kind of what I was thinking but not built like my southbend.(too big!)Might fit a 10 or something bigger. Don't think I am going to throw it out (wife says I don't ever do that anyway)
      Maybe measurements would help to identify it better.

        Just a guess,but it looks somewhat similar to an extractor that used to be used for pulling the timing gears on a Triumph m/cycle. I've still got mine somewhere.

          I don't suppose the internal thread fits a 5C collet does it ?

            Looks like the adapter end of a draw tube that you find on a collet closer.

              It's a tape measure! and it doesn't have any metric markings on it.

                    Jeeeez! I'm just so excited! It's a tape measure.

                    That is the most embarrasing thing to happen, not just a double post but a triple!!

                    How come when I posted the page didn't update?? I saw it had gone up to 8 posts (from an original of 5) but couldn't see my post??

                    I have had a bit of trouble just lately with a software firewall not allowing me to get onto let alone get my email from the 'A**holes On Line' Corp. I'm running Zone Alarm, could this be causing the trouble??

                    It's a tape measure!

                        My Dad always told me, "if it looks like a duck, and it quacks like a duck, then it is probably a TAPE MEASURE.

                          Inside bore from the large end is smooth(1.185"), small end is threaded about 7/8"deep.
                          Overall lenght is 3.625"
                          Largest OD is just above the threads on the outside which is about 1.955
                          outside thread dia is about 1.895

                          Thanks for any help identifying this.

                            That's damn good measuring with a tape measure,the best I can do with one is count the inches and then so many of those little black dots.

                              The decimals are on the back side of the tape measure...
                              (That is what that thing is, isn't it?)
