Default This Will Be Interesting

A while back I bought from the Chinese marketing company (Bang Good), a set of boring bars, with carbide inserts, then a little later a parting tool, with carbide inserts and finally a set of carbide inserts for an obscure boring attachment I own. So far everything I have gotten is excellent, which is scary, considering the extreme low cost.

Apparently, on Saturday, I let the pain killer induced haze to allow me, to purchase even more from them, I ordered 2 sets (10 inserts) for the 2, parting tools I own, Grizzly's cost is $20 per insert, their cost is $1 an insert, the ones that came with the parting tool are great. I ordered a lathe threading tool, with 10 inserts, a turning/facing tool with 10 inserts, 2 larger boring bars and the 10 inserts, for a total cost of $89, with free shipping, about 2-3 weeks delivery. They said that the last time and it was here in about a week.

Today I also purchased an ER 32 x R8 collet adapter, with nut and wrench, for $33 and a set of face mill inserts, for $15 a set. I'm real interested to see the quality of the collet arbor. I had two friends order them, both of them when checked were in the .0008" run out range, a third one, bought one and it was about .0015" run out. it will be interesting to see what mine is.

Great question.

I've noted that machine lights tend to be either non-led and well priced, or led and priced HIGH.

As cheap as led manufacturing is these days these lights should be plentiful and inexpensive.

But I need one still. Let me know what you think of it when your order comes in

Well, I wasted an hour...


They've got a bit much of everything, but I did see a few things I could use for sure. I need to figure out my little air clamp rig I'd intended to build a few years ago and they have plenty of pneumatic valves to choose from. Guess I need to re-educate myself on what that's going to take. Cool stuff.

lol Talk about your one-stop shopping! It's the only catalog I've ever seen for machine tools to sex toys.
But the prices are great.
