    Default WTB: Nikken MCT30 or SPI Quick Change tool holders

    Bought a machine with a Nikken quick change spindle 6 months ago and had expected something to have come up by now, yet I've not found any for sale. Swapping the collet in the single holder that comes with it every time I change a tool is getting really tiresome, so does anyone have anything spare they're looking to sell?

    Is it the same as a Universal Tool Kwik Switch 300?

    According to the site below they're different and unlikely to fit. It seems to be hard stuff to find as I have alerts set and have been watching Yahoo Japan auctions, and nothing has appeared on there.

    Spi type holders have an iso 30 taper and shorter drive lugs than universal quick switch.

    I saw some on Ebay a few weeks ago. The problem is that there are many different names for that style holder. You kind of have to search around for awhile.

    I have this stuff for sale if you're interested.

    Thanks for the offer, unfortunatly I've no real use for English size tools unless it really is the only option. Swapping the spindle has been mentioned yet the only ones around are Chinese. I'd rather put up with the inconvenient and accurate Nikken spindle, than a inaccurate Chinese R8 spindle. The other option was trying to adapt any 30 taper tooling although that's more work than it's really worth.

    The Japanese don't use Ebay at all and their secondhand marketplace is Yahoo Auctions Japan. Like the French only use Leboncoin.
