Does anyone know where I could obtain an INT 40 to 2MT adapter. I have a lot of lathe tooling (e.g. collet chuck, boring head)with 3/8 BSW threads for a drawbar.
I have a standard one which takes tanged 2 MT drills, and has a 16mm drawbar thread (originally it had a pull-stud in it which I have removed, but the problem is that this won't take a 3/8 drawbar as it won't pass through the tang part of the adapter. The slot for the tang is too small to take the 3/8 diameter.
I had thought of grinding out the tang slot in the adapter to pass 3/8
- has anyone else tried to do this? - Or is there a better way to achieve the same result?
