    MT0 to 3/8-24 Morse taper arbor from scrap

    I bought some threaded rods with hex centers from my favorite nut and bolt supplier who deals with new and surplus material.
    At the time I did not have a plan for them. They were metric threads but I thought I could use the stock at a later date.
    So far I built 4 machinist jacks from them and now I added these MT-0 and MT-future taper adapters.
    You can see in the pictures two that have been completed and 4 are still blank for future use.

    Cheers, JR

    Indeed! I agree with that but I think I may need another room for all my stuff!

    Cheers, JR
