tools for turret

matthew moser
 

I need to find decent substitutes for emco cutters.  I suppose I can substitute a .5 shank cutter for a 12 mm one.  Can anyone give me a list of tools they have found, a catalog from which to order them and tool numbers and numbers for their carbide inserts?  I need the following:

Right hand cutter

Left hand cutter

Thread cutter (external) RH

.375 diameter boring bar, or 10 mm diameter with indexable inserts

Any help would be appreciated.

Which country are you living in ?
Have you looked at eBay ?

I live in the US.  The best I can find on Ebay is 8mm shank tools.  I have catalogs and catalogs of tooling but I hope someone has found something really close to OEM tools that they have proven to work.  I should also specify that the tools should not have too much stickout to be able to clear in turret rotation.

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.

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.

Now back at lathe, tools I have are

SDNCN 1212 - neutral
SDJCR 1212 - right
SDJCL 1212 - left
STA 1210R - thin right hand tip
NL 12-3 - external thread cutting
NL 1210-2 - external thread cutting (finer threads)
SGAFR 12-1.6 - parting tool
SRDCN-1010-E05 - profiling

Most of these came with other tooling, I would not purchase some by choice but I am not one to refuse an offer ;-)

The parting tool is perfect for a Compact 5, having a 1.6mm cut, it does not over strain the lathe and bearings.

I have a Sandvik 2.5mm parting tool for my Emco Maximat Super 11 and also Plansee/Tizit heavy cut tools which will fit a Compact 5 but it will not like a 4mm cut!

CTFNR 1212 F 11 - right facing
CTGNR 1212 F 11 - right turning

Nikcole mini-systems THE-7-1/2-R is a good grooving & parting tool for thin grooves
