    Yet another lathe centering tool

    I believe that almost all members of HMT who are using lathe have one. Or should have one.
    Mine is constructed from FBZJ-ER20-20, 6201 ball bearing and 6 cm long HSS round bar dia 12mm.
    This versatile tool (FBZJ-ER20-20) is also in use as boring bar holder, keyway cutter holder and that
    62012Z ball bearing on 12 mm shaft is in use as edge finder for large works in the mill.

    Cheers

    I have a double ended one so I only have to switch positions on the QC tool holder to change between face and radial alignment.

    I am also planning to buy wedge type QC tool holder (Chinese 251-222 set = USD 132 here in China) which will be good for 16 x 16 mm cutting tools, but not for anything bigger like MT2 or MT3 or this FBZJ-ER20-20 holder.

    Cheers
