    Lathe Tap and Die holders for the Sherline Lathe MT0 tail stock

    Drill rod was used for the MT0 arbor. T6061 Aluminum for the barrels.
    The first barrel has a hex for what I think is a 10mm metric die. Not sure where I got that one!
    The other end of the first barrel has a 5/8" hex die for dies such as Hanson.
    The second barrel has only one end prepared for a die. That is for the 3/4" round die.

    Pictures and prints below:
    Cheers, JR

    Additional adapters

    While making these die holders I thought back to a set that I made for my 7x16 lathe.
    Checked out the various adapters for 1" dies round and hex and a set of Irwin tap holders that I had already made.

    Well it seems that all I need to use the old adapters was a new MT0 arbor with a shaft to fit the old adapters.
    That is what the second .615 arbor is for in the drawing.

    Here is the old post and a picture of the old adapters:

    JR,
    Nice job on the mini lathe die holder.
    I made one to fit my 11” Logan a few years back. I no longer have the Logan so now the die holder lives on my 7x16 MicroMark.
    I chuck up a 3/8” drill blank and the die holder floats on that. I have a coarse knurl grip on the O.D. and the 1” round dies are held in a counterbore with cone point set screws. Works great.
