    I misunderstood these recent comments.

    I like the project.

    Also agree that making the part move against a rigid, fixed tool seems more practical

    Per stock removal rate: I imagine the cut depth/volume is limited by your ability to...

    Thanks for trying.

    If anyone else is interested, the face of the holder could be ground back so the parting tool parts off up to 13/16" with no compromise in any of the working features. It would...

    Now I'm confused.

    "R & D" responded to email as noted in ad, first, after Tim, who found the jaws would not fit his chuck.

    Probably one of a dozen (50? 100?) wannabe copycats of the (sort of) original self promoting badboy bicycle attire/gear/backcountry/faked photo scofflaw company, then.

    Per OP, if cost is an issue, knock out the insert, find a threaded back 4 jaw chuck and stick it on the nose - that will give the most flexibility and the most bar capacity through the spindle.

    Good! :)



    No.

    Your sharpie idea will work, too.
    As long as you can get a thorough even coat.
