South Bend Lathe tool / cutter bit grinding block COMPLETE SET
January 9, 2019
A reproduction of South Bend Lathe’s cutter bit grinding fixture with ALL 5 tool holder sizes! This tool from Alisam Engineering is a reproduction of South Bend Lathe Works cutter bit grinding block not in production for many years! Each grinding block will come with all 5 square tool bit holders! Tool holders come in 5 different sizes, 3/16, 1/4, 5/16, 3/8 and 1/2 inch to fit most quality, ground, square modern tool bits, (using the 3/16 tool holder and drilling the appropriate sized hole, round tool bits may also be ground). Purchaser must bore a hole to the specs they desire. We have increased the capacity of the tool holders by adding the 1/2 inch square tool bit size which was not available from SBL, in doing so we increased the overall size of the block and the diameter of the tool holders by about. Thus our tool holders will NOT interchange with the original without turning down their OD. Also comes with complete, detailed, easy instructions with cutter bit data sheet and an Allen wrench. Made from quality, anodized, aluminum with very accurate laser engraved indexing marks HERE IN THE USA, employing your neighbors on CNC equipment! See our other SBL reproduction tools in our store! This tool is a favorite fixture for the home shop machinist, steam / gas model engine / train builder or gunsmith. This little jig is not just for the South Bend Lathe owner! Use it on tool bits for ANY lathe OR metal shaper using the 3/16 to 1/2 inch square cutter bits such as, Atlas, Craftsman, Logan, Monarch, Hardinge, Enco, Emco, Prazi, Ammco, and the Chinese imports, (9 X 20 and such). The ease at which a machinist can now grind very accurate compound angles on their square tool bits / cutter bits is without comparison! Place your cutter bit in the appropriate sized tool holder, rotate the center tool holder to achieve the desired side / back / top rake angle, lock set screw and grind on your grinder or belt / disc sander! The block automatically creates a 10 degree clearance angle just like the original, (but may be placed flat to achieve a small degree of front clearance). Thought I had better get around to letting you know I received the grinding jig last week. I hope you sell tons of these. Anyone with a lathe or shaper is very foolish not to have one of these jigs in their toolbox. Just wanted to say Thanks! I tried it out on several size bits, and it works perfect. Keep up the good work! Nice workmanship—-better than Southbends!!!! Than SB’s was and also a Gage. The free listing tool.
