Re: Cutting Off / Parting


Looking online I find no suppliers of 7/16" but lots of 1/2".  With the manufactures listing the product as using 1/2" also makes it seem as something is afoul here.

Agreed, but 1/2-inch won't fit in the tool in front of me.  I need to believe the tool in hand over a Armstrong and Williams catalog.

Unfortunately, no go with 1/2-inch. When I measure the opening I get 0.445 to 0.486. Maybe 7/16-inch. Can’t find those anywhere.

Hi There,

As far as I know, the 29 uses a 3/32" x 1/2" cut-off blade.  These
usually come about 4" to 4-1/2" long.  There are lots of them on eBay.

Good Luck!
