PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT
Multi-Tool Holders – NEW
5800 NexGen Mill

These new multi-tool holders were designed to complement our four-position, gang-tooling tool posts (P/N 5930 or P/N 5935). They can be used in conjunction with the gang-tooling tool post, or on its own for our customers who want to convert their Sherline lathe into a “Chucker Lathe” or gang-tooling lathe.

The front-side tool holders have two holes for holding 3/8" (P/N 5932) or 5/8" (P/N 5937) tools, and a slot for holding turning, grooving or threading tools.

Also available are rear-side cutoff tool holders that are similar to the front-side tool holders, but they have a slot for holding a cutoff tool blade (P/N 30860). Using the holder as a rear mounted cutoff tool allows you to use the cutoff tool from the back side of the part. (P/N 5931) has 3/8" holes, and (P/N 5936) has 5/8" holes.

MONTHLY SPECIAL
3/8" Carbide Inserted Tip Cutting Tools and Inserts
These carbide tool holders and boring bars are offered as sets to complement our new front side and rear side multi-tool holders. The front-side tool holder (P/N 5932) holds up to two, round boring tools, and a slot for holding turning, grooving or threading tools. The rear-side cutoff tool holder (P/N 5931) is similar to the front-side tool holder, but it has a slot for holding a cutoff tool blade (P/N 30860). Using the holder as a rear mounted cutoff tool allows you to use the cutoff tool from the back side of the part.

All of these tool holders can also be used in conjunction with our 3/8″ Insert Holder Tool Post (P/N 7600), and the boring bars can be used with the Rear Mount Cutoff Tool and Holder (P/N 3018).

We are also offering our bulk packs of 10 carbide inserts (see below for details). Carbide cutters give good finishes on hard-to-machine materials such as cold rolled steel. They will also work on aluminum, brass or leaded steels, and will last practically forever. Read more...

SHOP TIP OF THE MONTH
Distinguishing between Standard and Coated Chucks
We offer some of our chucks with an electroless Nickel-Teflon coating that has been applied to help prevent wear and corrosion, significantly improving the life of the chuck. Some of our customers have been wondering how to tell the difference between our standard chucks and those that have the electroless Nickel-Teflon coating. Read more...

Mill Accordion Way Cover Upgrade (P/N 5090)

Our way cover material has recently been upgraded. The new polypropylene material is more durable and is resilient enough to better withstand the temperature of hot chips. The material itself is more opaque and is 10 mil, versus the clear, 5 mil of the previous version (mil=0.001?).

The upgraded material offers a better value than our previous way covers because it will wear longer, and we are able to offer it without having to raise the price. Read more...
