About a week or so ago, I was asking questions about either the Sherline 3054S and the Taig #2035 boring head, I would like to try. Welp, my Taig #2035 boring head arrived today.

This all started the next day, I was talking to my cousin about what everyone had said, this was while I was doing some head work, for his insane (my word) go-kart project. As I was reassembling his engine, he was ordering me a boring head (personally I thought he was viewing Asian porn), so in addition to the case of Mt Dew Code Red (at times I work cheap), the work was paid for by the boring head purchase.

Insane go-kart, chrome-moly frame, 350cc Rotax random twin engine, 7 speed gear box, top speed 175 mph+

The Taig boring head does not have the adjusting screw, that the Sherline has, other than that it seems very similar, to what I seen. Is it super technical??, No. Is it well made??, Seems so. Will it work for what I want it for??, Probably. We shall see, if not it did not cost me a dime. It came with two small boring bars, whether, they are useful or were shipping box ballast, at this point is unknown.

How about a photo of the Kart?
Don’t think the porn would fly here.

The problem with the Taig boring head is that it's made out of aluminum. I had one break when I was boring some steel with it. Taig replaced it, but I'm not going to repeat using it in still.

I bought a little Criterion head from eBay and intend to make a 3/8" shank for use with the Taig.

My wife always jokes about those creepy old men in a dark garage staring leeringly at pictures of old, chromed cars and engines.

I'm afraid to ask for pictures of the kart after my last statement.

Thank you,

yes, I see it aluminum and is a light-weight piece, I have multiple boring bar hears, I just wanted a small light-weight Head for a couple of real small jobs, while not perfect it should be up to the job.

Criterion heads are the reason, I now refuse to buy used tooling off of EBay, the last one I got was junk, very long story short, I lost money and have an unusable head.

In my limited experience, boring in my mill (full size knee), I have a Shars 2" boring head attached to a NT30 taper holder.
I've almost given up boring on the mill.
I know rigidity is crucial and the cutting tool needs to be sharp and on center without a positive lead angle.
I wish you well on your search.
I'm thinking about a Criterion as well.
