    Make a small boring bar from a scrap carbide insert

    Here's an easy project for anyone with MAPP gas or an equivalent high heat torch.



    Cheers Rob

    Rob,

    I can go directly to your YouTube channel "xynudu" and see the video for the small boring bar however the URL link you provided above does not work.

    Regards,
    Paul Jones

    Hi Paul,

    Not sure how that happened. I may have been in YT edit mode when I posted the link ? I have corrected the original post.

    All good now.

    Cheers Rob

    Intellectually I've always known making your own tools by brazing on carbide inserts was doable. But never saw the need until today's watching Rob's video. Suddenly I'm getting some creative thoughts on construction of high performance and specialized boring bars and keeping vibration frequencies and the resulting chatter as high up as possible.
