    Making a Corner Radius Tool For a Lathe

    This form tool was made from oil hardended rod. Since I'm using it on aluminum, it works fine without actually hardened it.

    If you are interested, please see

    Very good and simple idea, more easy to make than with the mill and with a non restrictive number of possibilities, well done !

    Perfect! Rick, harden that cutter and you may find it last far longer than you imagined. Beyond that you don’t have the bulk of a corner rounding endmill to deal with.
