    Default Wanted: wedge & screw for SPG face mill

    Hi,

    I got a massive ~10" facemill cutter with 12 SPG532 inserts. It's an old
    SECO (marked Fagersta Sweden 257.1). Was on a NMTB50 with a VN22L.

    Unfortunately it is missing one wedge and screw, like this:

    The screw appears to be a differential M8-1.0 / M8-1.25 hex screw, i.e. the
    wedge side is threaded for LH 1.25 and the body of the cutter at RH 1.0 thread/mm.
    It could also be 5/16-20 RH to 5/16-24 LH. It's definitely not 5/16-18.

    Anyone have a suggestion for finding one of these?

    I don't know enough about this family of facemills to know if the wedges are standard-ish or unique?

    Thanks!
    -Phil

    Following. I have a smaller Valentine face mill with a nearly identical screw stripped.

    Just remove five more inserts and you will have five spares?
    Changes the feed rate but should still work?

    Definitely an option of last resort, certainly. And as a bonus, saves 50% on inserts!
