FoR 16mm Parting Tool Combo
Title
FoR 16mm Parting Tool Combo
Description

FoR (Front or Rear) Inverted Parting Toolholder includes a fine, high-strength Crobalt parting tool. Operates with blade held upside down. Use in front or rear tool post. Model specifically set for tool posts on 16mm Diamond Toolholder.

  • Inverted blade design significantly reduces chance of jam-up and blade breakage
  • Minimal side overhang and no front overhang help maximize rigidity
  • Cutting takes place on underside. Swarf tends to fall out of groove rather than pile up on top of cutting edge
  • Lack of swarf on top of blade means coolant is free to get right in to cutting edge
  • Horizontal mounting of blade further reduces chance of blade pulling itself into cut and is especially advantageous when turning brass and bronze.
  • Simple to resharpen--only front face has to be ground.

Features/Tips

If backordered, shipping may take 2 to 3 weeks.

Crobalt Square Bit 1/4"x1-1/2" L
Title
Crobalt Square Bit 1/4"x1-1/2" 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.
