Does anyone have any idea how to identify the particular bit that was included with a motor lathe?
I have the Hudy lathe, and I think that I may have ruined the diamond bit.
Until I'm ready to purchase a new "diamond" bit, I want to get a couple of carbide bits. I've found a local shop that does mail order (Maryland Metrics www.mdmetrics.com
) that sells tool bits. While the shop is in the same state, it's not exactly around the corner. The bits are classified as:
E, D, C, BR-L, and AR-L
sizes: #4 (1/4"), #5 (5/16"), #6 (3/8"), #8 (1/2") and #10 (5/8")
The price for the 1/4" are $1.50 each or $3.25 depending on manufacturer.
