  • 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.

What is this? Most likely a mill chuck?

Can someone identify this? I got it in a box lot of a machinist at auction locally. I am pretty sure it is an end mill holder but I can't find any manufacturers name. There are no markings. The one end has a spiral that I think tightens it into the chuck. The hole inside seems to have a slight taper but that may not be true. I've spent hours looking through google images and ebay, etc... Time to ask the experts!

That is most definitely a Moore tool holder for a Moore Jig Borer as @Silverbullet mentioned. Looks to me like an endmill holder, but I wouldn't swear that that's the case. I know a guy who collects Moore equipment, so if you're looking for an expert identification, post some measurements and I'll see what I can find out. Otherwise, figure out what end mill fits in it and post it to eBay labeled as a Moore holder with the size and see what it brings.

Cheers,
Will

Yep, apparently for a jig borer. I acquired some tooling for one but unfortunately not the machine.
Beautiful little boring head, made in Beverly Hills

Guess you'd call it a boring head, the cutter mounts directly in it but its adjustable in 1/10ths

And a simple one

Maybe it came from Rodeo Drive?
