    Home made part off tool holder for the lathe.

    I made this part off tool holder after winning a kennametal part off tool on ebay. I started with a chunk of 2"x1-3/4 4041 and machined the dovetail, the recess for the part off tool instelf and 3 holes for the cap screws to tighten it down. I parkerized it to help it from rusting.

    This is my favorite part off tool and holder.

    I can't remember to be honest but it is very likely I did. Thank you for the nice compliment.
