    I don't see an issue with what you want to do. If you grind a decent flat (just large enough for a cup point to it can't move up or down) it should be fine.

    Called Techniks(still imports er32 holders for the routers) said they could custom make min 3pcs at roughly $200 ea with 6mo lead and they would deff be interested in buying several if a run was made; my rep(techniks) suggested Leitz tooling and Brinney tooling for quicker results, Brinney could make them but said it would be aprox $600ea and Leitz is looking into shrink fitting a straight shank arbor(guess they make shrink fit holders for the router crowd,) supposed to get a call back from them in AM.

    Really starting to think the best COA is to do a straight shank short term until I can make a short run of proper holders which involves moving an OD grinder home and reassembling.

    This is an easy machining job with a decent lathe. You don't need to make the entire toolholder. Just start with one close and whittle away what you don't want.

    I have toolholders that were welded up and machined. Probably done in the 80's and still working fine.

    OD grinder is fine, but not required at all.

    You only have 5 hp.
    Could go down to 1/2 in a set screw endmill holder.
    Boring it open an option if you know what you are doing. The OD is likely not real true to the insert pockets.
