I just became the owner of a CAT45 tool holder by way of garage sale this weekend. I'll be using it for something interesting in a metalworking project but not CNC related.
I've browsed the web and reviewed the "all things taper related" web sites, but I'm curious just how popular this taper actually is and if there is a reason why it exists other than to span the gap between C40 and C50?
Is there something special about it I should know?
