I bought some Valenite indexable holders, specifically these:
look like they hold the diamond shaped carbides - I figured I could
put them in an Aloris type BXA-1 holder - but I am wondering how they really
are intended to be used - I've spent way too much time looking around the
Valenite on-line catalogs without finding these things - with any luck
someone on the NG will know exactly how they are used and what I should use
to find them in the Valenite catalogs. Of course if that doesn't work I can
contact Valenite, but I hate to bug "real" companies with a triviality like
this when we can all sit around and chat about it here.
if you don't want to look at the ebay link, the little things are marked:
MSKNR-10CA-3 the R of course means right handed, I was able to decode some
of the rest of the part number, but it isnt' at all obvious why they have
the little special set screw in the back nor the oval hole in the middle.
Do these go on boring bars? a special "mother" holder? or what?/?/?
