Gents, I am looking for a reasonably priced tailstock drill chuck arbor for a small lathe. It needs to have a Boley/WW-style 8mm collet shank X #0-Jacobs taper stub. Cowells have them but their price is prohibitive. Levin, the last maker of watchmakers type machines in the US, have them but their price is even more prohibitive. I have an inquiry out to RDG Tools who appear to have some tooling of this size at reasonable prices but they don't list the exact item. Additional suggestions for sources from either shore welcomed. After a rather long layoff I returned to work on my big TICH this week and have been attacking the cylinders. Next time I'll allow for just a wee bit more machining allowance all-around. Everything is OK but I'd cut it awfully close on all sides and I'd like to have more material available so as to be able to get a bit further beneath the skin.
