I don't think I will be able to use that style bit, since I have a stock lathe and the bit must fit inside the endbell.

Yeah, thats a great place to get them. It is rediculous how much the companies like integy, eagle, and trinity want for their bits!

Those are round shank end mill cutters. Is that what you guys are using as lathe bits??

Hrmmm... pops is a machinist and has always preached the right tool for the right job and that doesn't look like the right tool to me.

Go to page 2364. I tried to post a link but it didn't work. The AR-4 and AR-L bits are $3.23, thats damn near free. Gonna get a few.

They changed the catalogue page number. The new page they are on is 2364.

You said the AL-4 and AR-4 doesn't look like what you have been using? Every lathe I have seen (except the ones that dont require taking the endbell off) uses bits that look just like this. I have three and they work great. Even better than the stock carbide bit. I attached a picture.

The link doesn't work. We are talking about the bits on page 2364. They are the AR-4 and AL-4. R for Right, L for left.

yea the ar4 and the al4 are for mod lathes aka for rebuildable motors not for stock lathes aka sealed end bell make shure though our lathes work backward from a normal one so if you cut you comm from right to the left you need a left hand bid because the bit is upside down in our lathes and vice versa for left to right cuts

wvracer
this is a al-4 bit so you would chuck it up so the cutting section is on the bottom and it would be used on a right to left cut lathe with the motor spinning away fom you


1/4" 1/4" 2"
AR-4 3367A331 $3.24 3367A121 $3.11
AL-4 3367A341 $3.24 3367A131 $3.11

unless i am confused you say these bits are for the sealed endbell type of lathes or for the rebuildable type where you pull the arm out to cut the comm

thanks
