    Tear Drop Cutting Tips for Hollowing Bar

    Anybody know where you can buy the tear drop cutters for boring bars online ? I have been making them out of old saw blades but I did not see anything like them at Enco unless I am not seeing them

    I haven't tried them, but these are the least expensive ones I've seen:

    Also, Randy doesn't list them on his Monster Lathe Tools website, but I'd be willing to bet he'd sell them for a fair price.

    I haven't used the tear drop scrapers much anymore since I got one like this from Randy. It just leaves a smooth surface.
