    I love tools that are functional and look like they could be in a museum.

    What an amazing bead roller!!!

    This week's one, in progress (still need to harden, temper and hone). It's a set of "telescoping" plug cutters for veneer repair. The smallest cuts a plug for a standard drill size, and the one above it cuts the plug for its hole, and so on:

    This is nothing fancy, but here is a 1" boring/I.D. threading bar I made, threading insert on one end, then turn it around and you have an inserted boring bar...

    Baxtool - were the blanks forged to shape and then finished or did you mill each from the solid?

    Hi Joe,
    Here is the one that started everyone else making them recently. Evidently it is a tool that was made a long ago, so it's not a new idea.
    http://madmodder.net/index.php?topic=2323.0
    There is also another one made by someone else on that site.

    Link from the South Bend section Quick Retracting Toolpost (MLA-16D) The Geo. H. Thomas quick retracting toolholder was made from drawings in his book but can also be found at Hemingway kits in the UK. Hemingway Kits Retracting Tool Holder

    Was it a bit like this?





    There's about 1/8" travel and it retracts very smartly with a flick of the lever.

    George Thomas design in 'Model Engineer"
    Ludicrously, it's on a Hardinge with retracting topslide, but for square threads or buttress it's surprisingly handy.

    There is a trade school in Wisconsin where the students build a vertical mill as a project. I owned one of the earlier ones for a while, and milled everything from wood to steel with it. I wish you guys could see one of them, they are pretty cool.
    John W., if you are out there send a picture please!

    tool post made for my Mazak Nexus Lathe, I needed 2" extra lenght for a long drill, its a shame buying a new machine without realizing is too short for many aplications , I was lucky it was 2" only and solved the problem doing the tool post.

    After a recent installation of a surface grinder at my dad's shop, I had bought him a couple of different wheels and some wheel adapters/arbors (whatever you prefer to call them.) It surprised me when he told me had had never changed grinding wheels that way before. The shops he worked in had always just removed the LH nut and taken the wheel off the adapter, leaving the adapter on the spindle nose.

    I had a 1/2 hour to kill so I grabbed a piece of 1-5/8ths diameter 303 stainless and made this on his lathe. The rusty 1/2-13 hex head bolt was something he had kicking around, but it was the perfect length so it ain't changing.



    I know, it's NOTHING compared to the beautifully-crafted weeks or months-long projects you other guys do, but I was proud of myself and my dad was thrilled to see how easy it is to change wheels now.
