Mike,

How happy are you with the Orion lathe so far? My Cobra has been working well, but I've been attracted to the Orion ever since I saw a picture of it.

What are these bits?



I think these are AL4 Correct?

If these are AL4 then the Cutting Edge is in the wrong place for me.

I think these are AR4



Which is what my current Lathe Has and just like what I bought from McMaster.

Am I getting these things all backwards?

Those arent AL or AR style at all, the A style is more straight.

Pat is right, those look more like BR's and BL's to me.

I think that I am just going to break down and get a Cobra Diamond Lathe Bit for my Lathe. Do you think that this will work with my Orion Lathe?

Thanks

yes, but why spend a 100 bux for the cobra bit when u can get one for 51 bux+2 bux shipping? half the price. these guys in the industry are just screwing everyone in the hobby for these diamond bits. jsut so u know.

you would want an al4 polycrystaline diamond bit. nothing really special, used all the time in the machine tool industry. if u buy from cobra, the more than 100% profit on that bit selling it to you. let me know if u wanna get one for half price.

motoxr,
I would be interested in buying a couple carbide bits for my lathe. I have a Eagle Mod3 lathe, the bit sits on the left side, opposite of the cobra lathe in the pitures above.
email me when you get a chance
[email protected]

Thank you,
Dave
