1. if you cannot stand sarcasm, stay away from newsgroups.
number 2 - look in kennemetal catalog
number 3 - dead center
number 4 - indexable boring bars
number 5 - carbide tipped cutters.
only number 4 is likely to be worth more than a dollar or two
#1 is a large pipe tap. Measure the diameter, the pipe size is about
3/8" smaller than what you measure. Should be marked on the side, expect
to see something like 2" NPT or similar.
#2 Are indexable carbide tool holders, I don't recognize the exact
configuration. Probably used on a larger turning center.
#3 is a dead center, used on a lathe, probably Morse taper. Should be
marked with a number from 1 to 5, looks like a #3 or so.
#4 is a collection of boring bars with indexable carbide cutters, used
on a lathe or a boring head on a milling machine. Measure the diameter
#5 is a collection of brazed carbide insert lathe tooling. Measure the
bar dimension to get an idea of what size they are. Exepct to see
dimentions like 1/2", 3/8", etc.
Whole collection looks like the consumables for a larger manual lathe.
According to leeana :
A large pipe thread tap. The name "RIGID" is normally
associated with pipe threading and wrenches. It should have the size
stamped into the shank.
Kennametal parting/grooving insert holders which mount on rather
large bars which are not included in the photo. Get a copy of the MSC
catalog and look there for what they fit.
That is a Morse taper center -- with what looks like a carbide
tip. I've got no clue as to the size -- but I *think* that it is too
large for any lathe that I own.
Boring bars -- as your photo name suggests -- mostly carbide
insert type. Some look too large for my lathe, though the smallest
three or four may work. You really should include a 6" or 12" scale
(ruler) in the photo to give an idea of sizes.
Brazed carbide insert lathe tools. All seem to be left-hand
ones -- less commonly used than the right-hand ones. Again, how about
hints as to the size?
Certainly we don't have enough information available as is for
you to have a chance of re-selling them, which I presume is your
#1 is a pipe tap
#2 is an indexable something or other (check other posts)
#3 is a morse taper dead center, possibly with a carbide tip
#4 are indexable lathe boring bars, large size
#5 are AL (style A, left handed) brazed carbide lathe tools, C5 grade
carbide, 7/16" shank
Hint: on that one all of the info is in the number AL7C5--AL is tool
style, 7 is shank size in 16ths of an inch, C5 is a grade of carbide,
the only other one you would see is C2.
These all appear to be lathe tools, but they could vary from a large
CNC turning center (#2 and some #4) to #5 which could be used on a
relatively small bench lathe.
Hope this info helps clarify what the other posts said.
inserts. For turning on a lathe.
Brazed carbide turning tools, for a lathe.
So, no milling anything here, but all except #1 are for use with
lathes, pretty exclusively.
I might have some interest in some of the boring bars, are you
going to sell this stuff on eBay when you get it sorted out?
HI, yes, I was going to list them on Ebay. I also have a New Kennametal
indexable boring bar that retailed for over $100 (looked up the part
number on J & L) that I'm going to be listing.
Also, sorry everyone for not having a sense of humor that day, had a
lot going on in the family, I'm usually a lot of fun, really! Thanks
