    just wrap up this thread, i finally used my Arthur Warner tool last week on standard PEEK rod, 3/8" round. Works really well with the optional 1/32" wide blade.

    i agree, you'll snap the 8-32, or even the #10 tap, long before the standard ER slips. What's annoying is the collet ranges vs tap sizes as you mentioned. My collets go .160" to .200", and my 8-32...

    Finally deciding, after so many decades, to get some proper tapping Collets (the ones with the little square in the bottom). Why are they so expensive?

    i like the T-shaped blades on my larger cut-off tools, but i'll play around with tapering the sides if the Arthur Warner stuff doesn't already come that way. Square to chuck is definitely important...

    Lathe - HSS micro cutoff tool?

    anyone recommend a decent tool that takes the sliding HSS blades in a very small size 1/16" wide, 1/4 to 3/8" tall. All the ones i see are cheap imports, and not a huge fan.
    reason is i do a...

    Usually the extrude feature works ok, sometimes you have to fight the toggles as it defaults to " create body" and "thin wall" (under advanced), but after that it will typically cut a solid fairly...
