Re: tools for turret


The original Emco tooling was sourced from Ceratizit (Plansee). I do not have any tools to hand to check the codes but I think they are from this section below. The 12x12mm tool holders were cut/ground off – probably by Emco - to approximately 75mm long so as to leave just the tool head protruding from the turret; the grind marks are clearly visible on the end. This length also fits the quick change holders.

Note letter at end of code R L or N; right, left or neutral handed.

Click on which ever tool shape you require and you are taken to the tool holder pages.

I have uploaded a page capture to my photos folder, which gives the phone number for US service.

For those interested, the spanners supplied by Emco were from

I find that the single ended spanners are comfortable to use and hang well from a magnetic rack.

Page capture uploaded to my photos also.

searching for Sandvik and Glanze on ebay or just Lathe cutting tools should bring up some choices of suppliers.
You could use 3/8" but best to go for 12mm or 1/2" square shanks, I use mainly DCMT 07 type insert tools.
If tool shanks are too long and foul the saddle when rotating you can cut them down to suit the turret.
