  • As some of you know, I have wanted to stop managing H-M for some time. It's a tremendous strain on my personal life. I want to set up my own shop. In September, September 15, to be exact, it will be 8 years that Hobby-Machinist has been in existence.

    I have been training VTCNC to run things here. Dabbler is going to learn too. I feel that they are ready to start taking over the operation. I will be here to help in case they need, but I don't think they will. Tony Wells is and will be here also to consult with. I will be doing backups, upgrades, and installing addons. Other than that, I will not be around. I am leaving this place in good operating condition, and financial condition.

I purchased a bunch of long drill bits at a flea market. they are all precision USA made bits. they came from Boeing airline shop. I knew off the bat that I can use them in any of the drill chucks I have but there is obviously a correct tool holder for these bits. a sort of adapter that grabs the small ring of holes on the rear section. I'm sure someone on this forum knows exactly what it is and where to get it

Thanks in advance

They likely fit a Magic Chuck; you lift the ring around the chuck body, the balls retract, you pull the tool out and insert another tool, all while the machine is running.

I have a whole bunch of those. They were formerly used at Boeing, but are still sharp. The barrels are all the same size and work well in a standard chuck.
