    Making A Grooving Tool

    If you own a Quick Change Tool Post, you are very close to having a nice grooving tool. All you need is a length of broken hacksaw blade and a piece of scrap aluminum bar.

    If you are interested, please see

    Thanks Rick, that will work great for small snap rings - o-rings, sure will beat grinding one from a solid bit

    Great idea Rick. Your choice of mounting the blade tooth side up was also great as hacksaw blades are generally differentially tempered.

    2 great ideas in one: very slick improvised grooving tool, and "if you can't solve the problem, change the problem".

    thanks, Rick!

    How do you "lop off" hacksaw blades?

    It seems that you would have to temper it but then you lose the hardness in your cutter.
    It appears you put some heat to the smooth side. Was that to lop or to put in the relief?

    Thanks.
