    Default km 63 converted to KM63XMZ

    Has anyone heard of converting KM63 to KM63xmz by drilling locating holes in flange ?
    I read somewhere its possible,but not sure of the dependability of the source.
    Any help is appreciated

    It is possible I have done it before. I use an extension to hold it in the spindle.

    I will let you know however that the XMZ tools are not only different in the fact they have the locating features. They are also made of different materials. Mazak found that the holders stretch and take time to seat themselves in the spindle. This seems to be most important on boring bars that experience chatter when 1st loaded in the spindle and over the course of a few minutes become fully seated and chatter reduces or stops.
