FoR 16mm Parting Tool Combo
Title
FoR 16mm 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 16mm 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.

Crobalt Square Tool Bit - 1/4" x 1-1/2" L
Title
Crobalt Square Tool Bit - 1/4" x 1-1/2" L
Description

Crobalt cast alloy is an alternative tool bit to the 1/4" HSS tips usually used in the Diamond Tool Holders, its ideal for turning tough materials such as stainless, cast iron, and high carbon steels. Tougher and less brittle than carbide it can be ground using a normal aluminum oxide wheel, Crobalt contains 50% cobalt with the remainder being tungsten and chromium, there is no iron or steel in the alloy.

Watch the Diamond Toolholder in action doing a comparison test between M42 HSS (CoHSS) and Crobalt cast alloy -- both toolbits are 1/4" square.

They are being used in a Right Hand 12mm model Diamond Tool Holder, to turn 304 and 316 stainless bar and an interrupted cut on a piece of cast iron.

The lathe is a 1960s Colchester Chipmaster.

The Crobalt tips are 1/4" x 1/4" x 1 1/2" (6.35mm x 6.35mm x 38mm) and they come with square cut ends to be ground to the correct angle by the customer, using the Diamond Tool Holder grinding jig that comes with each tool holder kit.
