    This is not correct. They will warranty the spindle if it comes apart as long as you aren't the cause of it. This spindle is designed to run *either* Big Plus holders or CAT40 holders that are...

    You mean like with hard jaws? If so, I guess I could see that. It's rare I ever go that small but if I needed to I would just use a set of pointed soft jaws. They'll grip way smaller than 7/8.

    Does anyone use TNMX 434 inserts?

    Here's why I ask. I have 16 unopened boxes of Sandvik TNMX-434-WR 4215. These are wipers and 4215 is on the harder end though it is an old grade. It has been replaced.

    I don't want to throw...

    Yes. I think Higbee is a generic term. All the prints I've ever seen call it out as a blunt start.

    Blunt start and END threads

    How would you do the end? I get the start part.
