Thread: Diamomd tool holder
11/08/2009 15:00:25
Hi All fans of Diamond tool-holders,
For those of you how mistakenly think a Diamond/Tangential toolholder is a new or novel idea, take a look at the picture , hopefully, below. It is an image from a book dated 1886, just goes to show "there is nothing new under the Sun". Looks kinda familiar, don't you think?
Clearly my hopes where dashed! How do you post images? It was one the same page as the text but did not come out on the post.

Hi David,
An excellent interpretation, do you have clearance problems on larger diametres?

Thanks for that.
Good Lord above, talk about inflation. Wonder where I put my set, they must be around here somewhere. Another of those projects that added together need more than one lifetime to finish, but I shall try. No, sorry, they are not for sale.

Hi David,
Out of very idle interest, how much did the castings go for?

Hi George,
If you try a Tangential tool holder you will not be disappointed. I have been demonstating my version on the SMEE stand at the last two MEX's, and feedback always seems very positive. Not only do they cut very cleanly, they are a doddle to sharpen. This last point makes them ideal for learners who have not yet learnt to grind a "normal" toolbit. Makes expensive TC indexable bits redundant, almost.
