    I fat finger all of my machines. Including my multitasking machines and dual turret lathes with Y-axis. We make tool holders and machine tool accessories. Nothing is 3D profiled. Everything is...

    There are a lot of different ways to hold a cutting tool. And many of them are correct. And sometimes with no rhyme or reason.

    Sometimes you put a tool in a shrink holder and it chatters like...

    No you are not a hack. I don't use a single tap collet in my shop. I tap 5/8-11 in H-13 all day every day. For that tap I use a standard round collet ER25 or ER32. I do make sure the collet is as...

    If you are running an endmill or operation where the tool breaks often it is best to use an oversized hydraulic holder and use a sleeve. That 1 time out of 4 where the broken endmill kicks back will...

    In CAT40 machines ER32 and ER16 are the most popular. In BT30 it is ER25 and ER16.

    Yes our short side locks are very popular. Also our new hydraulic tool holders are popular and very easy to use....
  8. Yes, I am currently making all popular sizes in...

    Yes,
    I am currently making all popular sizes in 4.5, 3.5, and 2.75" gage length. The 2.75" gage length is the shortest you can make while still allowing all heat shrink machines to work on your tool...

    Fretting on the front of the shank and collet is because of movement. Hydraulics do not clamp until at least 3/8-1/2" in the bore socket. Front of the tool holder bore is brazed to the outer nose, so...

    Im not drinking that Koolaid. Anything more than 10 min is just a waste. Engineers are always overdoing stuff like this and seem more concerned about covering their ass instead of production. Same...

    If you guys were talking about BT30 or CAT40 I would have many things to offer. But currently my CAT50 offers are slim to nothing. New material prices aren't helping either. Anyway we are working on...

    Yes 4mm sleeves are in the works as well. Native 4mm hydraulic chucks are a no go.

    Thanks for the great feedback guys. We also started carrying hydraulic holders. Feedback has been great. We also have BT30 1/4" and 6mm hydraulics coming in soon. And I had custom sleeves made for...

    No I did not. Probably in the future I will. But many other projects ahead of this one.

    I am also running BT30 shrink holders. So far made 8mm, 6mm, and currently 4mm. So thank you for your reply.

    Yep, I still have the same opinion. Laws of elastic deformation did not change. I would be concerned about the super short hydraulics as well. Unless it was ground with the bladder under full...

    Whats the deal with ISO20?
    Most have a thin flange area, but the ones for HAAS have the thicker flange? Is that true?

    I dont think CAT40 is a big market across the pond. SK40 or BT40 would be more popular.
  19. Who uses Metric CAT40 shrink holders?

    Working on CAT40 shrink holders and trying to be smart about it. While making 1/4" shrink fit holders I am making a smaller batch of 6mm shrink fit holders. Same with 5/16 and 8mm blah blah blah....

    Yea hard to imagine how popular 1/8 shrink fit holders are. We are doing our best to replenish or stock. Some longer gage lengths and some Metric sizes are in the works.

    Makes sense. I used to make the same tools when running parts on a hydromat. Full form is the way to go.

    They are good for medium qty screw and fastener sourcing.

    Probably a few years at least. To grind the 3-lobed taper connection I need to get a CNC cylindrical grinder with a full c-axis or dedicate a mutitasking lathe for grinding (which I have done...
