    Boring/ grooving bar

    I needed to make a wide groove in the bore of another tool I am making so that I can use that tool to finish another tool that actually I made over 3 years ago.
    the only thing was while I have several small boring bars I didn't have a bar that I could use for making a groove inside of a bore.
    So I started off with milling a slot in a piece of 1" 1018 round bar then off center drilled it for a place to weld in a nut. I should have drilled it before I made the slot but it didn't matter that much.

    I LOVE THIS POST! It hi-lights what many of us run into we have to make something to make something to make a tool to make something that isn't a tool.

    Frank s,

    Nice work. I would like to see your wide grooving tool in action but currently the YouTube link does not work. Please post again.
