Yes it is. We have them at work that are commercially made, but they are no where near the quality of this one.

After years of contemplating I finally broke down and bought a 15pc set of 5C collets and collet blocks from All Industrial.
Also picked up a couple of YG1 spot drills.

Would you mind sharing cost? Ive had buying a set with blocks but haven't because of being paralyzed with TOO MANY Choices and Unscrupulous Vendors!

Sure, I've circled the important bits from my ebay history page. All Industrial is one of the few ebay vendors I trust in terms of decent quality products and more importantly if they sell a brand name like YG1 it's most likely not a counterfeit. Hope that helps!

An 18KBTU MrCool DIY mini split arrived today. It is going in the attic electronics shop space. In a few days, I should be basking in the 72º instead of the current 85º.

Nice, what's the sq-ft of the shop? It's been hot the last couple of days where I live. Today my 11.5k BTU portable (wheeled ones) a/c couldn't get below 79F even after 3hrs in my finished 440sq-ft garage/shop. It was 94F outside so I shouldn't complain too much.

The space is 320 Sq. ft. and it is well insulated (R19 average). However,outside of the walls and ceiling is a dead space that heats up to more than 100ºF on sunny days. Supposedly, a 12K unit would have worked for me but I couldn't find one anywhere and I actually got a better price on the 1`8K unit.

What kind of holder does one use for the cutter on top right?
Thanks scruffy Ron in Ohio
I don't know what it was intended for, but the set screw marks make it look like a prior owner mounted it in a c-channel tool holder or a turret. I don't use inserts often, brazed or otherwise, so I may never find out.

I couldn't turn it down, too cheap. No marks in the clamping area so I'm guessing it was never used. China is the only marking. 4"W 5" jaw opening.

Guess my pics aren't working or I can't post pics. It's a toolmakers vise but not the screwless type.

It’s not a tool, but somewhere to store them. “Vintage” Nielsen engineers cabinet. Previous owner was a lathe operator / turner for Leyland cars back in the 60s.

So, it’s going to be the new home for all my measuring instruments.

Picked all this up today. Plus a big 2x8Norton stone still in box. Was a sign on side of road for an estate sale so I stopped and he had a good bit of tools. Mitotoyu was $20 and is the only thing not USA made. Gave $35 for all of it.

Scraper is an Anderson HK42.

Did I do ok??

My Dad got a duplicate ANSI #1 tap collet holder, so he sent it to me. I had a 3/4 end mill holder on hand, and got the first pieces of my clutch tap holder collection started! Now I gotta try and grind the shanks of the tap drill bits square and to spec so I can fit them into rigid collars. Then I could drill and tap without moving the spindle out of the work feature's axis. How cool would that be?

Hasn't arrived yet, so I don't know if I wasted my money or not. But I have a number of PM articles archived and refer to them regularly. So I figure this to be a sound investment. Amazon,10 CDs for 40 bux, the list is down a ways with "popular mechanics archive" as the search, if anyone else is interested.

*If I could figure out how to post photos here, I'd put some up. Are there instructions somewhere I haven't found?

Drove about 185 miles and picked up a Kearney and Trecker TF-420 horizontal mill with vertical head and DRO. 13,000 lbs. of American iron. I also got several arbors, a rack with about 20 tool holders, about 100 cutters in various sizes, a K&T dividing head with plates, and a Troyke 15 inch rotary table. If my wife doesn't shoot me, I'll enjoy getting this thing into service. Now I've just got to get my shop finished. :grin:

Click the files button

Select the pics from your computer in the file browse dialogue that pops up. They will appear below the text entry box like so:

Position your cursor in the text box - then either hit the insert all or the individual insert buttons next to the pic you want.

I picked this up at an online auction last Thursday.

Got it home, put some HF casters on it, and put an old little giant pump on it and now have coolant. I'm going to replace the blade brush, and may have to replace the half but. But overall I'm happy with it.

After a morning of machining i needed a 41mm wrench for a wheel bearing job i need to do and after braking the one i had, i went to the tool/flea market, i bought two wrenches, and a pack of inserts for the lathe 12$ for everything and headed back to finish the bearing job, i bought used made in germany wrenches because they are better quality than the new china ones.

I was going to throw mine away until I figured out that the first click was the high, and full pull was low heat.
