    Default New bar puller found on eBay, anybody used one?

    Looking for cnc lathes on eBay. Came across a new bar puller that a company in the US is making and selling. Looks to be pretty new. Level 10 Tools | Ez-Puller The Only Bar Puller That Is Self Adjusting.. Has anyone used one of these or do I have to be the guinea pig? They are selling them for $595 for a short introductory offering. I have a PITA Royal that works great once you get it adjusted. Also make sure the jaw screws are tight because you can lose them very quickly in a barrel of chips, a two hundred dollar goof up. This puller uses a bar with a cam on the end to push on, I am guessing a stiff spring, to generate the power to squeeze onto the bar.

    I like it. Looks pretty fool-proof up to its max diameter.

    CNC Lathe Smart Bar Puller by Micron E.M.E Ltd - YouTube

    I bought this one and it is awesome. Way better than the POS royal 2 finger one I bought....Works great if you use your part off tool and put a groove .020 deep in the bar for the puller to grab on.

    The one you posted looks pretty sweet though....might have to check that out.

    I like that better than the coolant-activated one I was forced to try. The coolant-activated one was a total P.O.S.

    +1 for the Micron EME mentioned above. Not bad at all for the money.

    That level 10 does look nice, especially on the hex and square.

    Hey dstryr: Did you get the 3/4" shank model? If so, does it have a flat on the shank? If it has the flat, is it parallel to the hex body of the tool? That thing looks good to me. I'm considering a purchase, at $270 including shipping seems like a good deal.

    Thanks,

    Roger

    WOW! I like the look of that one!
    The coolant ones SUCK badly.

    I have an adjustable type, but it is still a PITA.

    Might need to pick up one of those.

    Doug.

    Just pulled the trigger on the micron-eme. Bought it direct from their website as opposed to ebay. Don't need the smart bar stopper.

    Wouldn't work for me. Says on their site the max DIA in round is 1.625". I have a heavy duty Royal puller. Been using it for close to 13 yrs. I'm sure it has made over a million pulls and still works just fine.

    I call them up to see if they had one which would work for my machine (small gang tool), they said they are currently working on a larger one as well as a smaller one. Looks like the smaller one is 8 months out, so I picked up the micron one and will try that one out for now.
