FoR 8mm Parting Tool Combo
Title
FoR 8mm Parting Tool Combo
Description

The FoR (Front or Rear) Inverted Parting Toolholder INCLUDES a fine, high-strength Crobalt parting tool. The FoR operates with the blade held upside down and can be used in a front or rear tool post.

This model is specifically set for toolposts that accommodate the 8mm Diamond Toolholder.

ADVANTAGES:

1: The inverted blade design significantly reduces the chance of a jam-up and blade breakage.

2: Minimal side overhang and no front overhang help maximize rigidity.

3: Cutting takes place on the underside so swarf will tend to fall out of the groove rather than pile up on top of the cutting edge.

4: The lack of swarf on top of the blade means coolant is free to get right in to the cutting edge.

5: The horizontal mounting of the blade further reduces the chance of the blade pulling itself into the cut and is especially advantageous when turning brass and bronze.

6: Simple to resharpen as only the front face has to be ground.
