    Armstrong tool holder in quick change tool holder

    Hello All: I think the mod that Abom uses is used in a multifix unit.. He probably didn't have to remove much of the forged tool holder, if any, to use it in his system.....Happy Fourth from Louisiana.. Ramsay 1:)

    Armstrong tool holder in quick change tool holder

    ;If you do decide to make a mod like this, be aware there are two types of forged holders... One type holds the cutter at an incline, the other straight... The former is for hi speed tooling, the latter for brazed carbides.. Do not make the mistake I made almost 50 years ago... Cheers; Ramsay 1:)
