    Not really fair because this goes on a 38 ft lathe and in truth belongs to RC Schmidt & Sons Inc.

    Is this a light effect or is there some hard chromium plating on the dovetail ?

    Assembled as shown measures 6 1/2 in. The threaded part looks like mine except for the head.....Did you make it?

    I see a reflection from the tool bit...so I'm not sure what you are looking at. The ship yard furnished the angled tool holder that was flame cut from mild steel. The rest was up to you on your own time.
    I was using it before I had a chance to get it heat treated so it has a few dings.

    Nope. As far as I know it's the factory original, but I'm not the original owner so I can't swear to the truth of it. That cutter is 1.25" x 1" HSS - perfect for cutting crowns! ;-)

    All of the new Aloris Holders have this coating on certain parts. Iím not sure what it is exactly.

    We use nothing but Aloris Holders now on all of our lathes. That is a total of 18 ranging from the smallest to the largest.

    Jackie,

    18 lathes?! Holy cow...no idea the business had that many. If you ever get bored, I'd love to see a list of what you got. I'm kind of a lathe nerd...I find them fascinating.

    Jackie,

    That's a pretty good sampling...American, Japanese, and Taiwanese. Which one is your favorite to run and why?

    Since I do my Rifle work on the Pratt & Whitney, I guess it is my favorite.

    But we have a specific function for every lathe. For instance, the Whacheon, which is a MoriSeki clone, is dedicated to making nothing but Rudder Bushings, which we make a lot of.

    One of the Kingstonís is set up to make large Propeller Nuts, from 3 3/4 to 6 inch. We have a band saw that does nothing but hex nuts.

    All of the other lathes are general purpose, from machining couplings, bolts, flanges, etc to long shafts.
