|Thread: Late delivery of magazines due to adverse weather|
I live in NE hampshire (Fleet) and am still waiting for ME and MEW. I suppose I should consider myself fortunate however because EIM was delivered this morning. Both ME and MEW were on sale in WHS but so far I have resisted the urge to purchase them.

Thanks Rob, I shall now order one.

Hi, I have a question about using indexable lathe tools in a QCT on a Myford lathe.
The spec for a standard toolholder shows a thickness of 7mm for the lower clamping surface. With a 3/8 sq shank the distance between the topslide and the tip ot the tool will be 16.5mm and this will increase to 17mm with a 10mm sq shank.
On my lathe the top slide to centre line distace is 16.25mm so does this mean it's not worth buying a QCT or am I missing something.
