    This is for Vaughn

    Knowing that you couldn't see these where I'd posted them before, you asked me to post them here. So here ya go. I have always wanted a mini and when this one came up, I couldn't pass it up and seems that I couldn't leave it alone. Had to put the hollowing system on it, I had made this articulating arm hollowing system a few years ago, messed with it a while and threw it on a shelf, until now. Still needs some tweeking, but I'll get it. Going to have to design some smaller tools.
    Nice place ya got here, hope I can make myself at home.

    Very cool Randy. I really appreciate you posting the pics here. Do feel free to make yourself at home here.

    On the subject of smaller tools, I recently picked up the Don Pencil "Stinger" set of 7/16" boring bars and bits with the intent of figuring out a way to adapt them to the Monster captive handle. So far I've only played with them a bit in the new indexer handle, but it looks like a female/female adaptor with the right sizes of holes is all it will take to attach the thinner boring bars to the Monster rig.

    Are they 7/16" diameter?

    I'm relieved to learn ye finally got smart enough to buy a Don Pencil set. For a while I was worried about ye.
    OTOH, if you had gotten the Scoripian set it comes with a set of four adapters so other make tools can be adapted to it. Mebbe he will sell you just the adapters.

    Yep, all three bars are just shy of 7/16" (0.436"). Seems a 1/2" hole would work, but I don't know if that'd end up being too much slop. I did try plugging the Pencil bars into the end of the 3/4" Monster straight boring bar, but it resulted in a captive rig about 20 feet long. Pretty flexy, too.

    Frank, as nice (and very usable) as the Pencil tools are, I still think the Monster stuff has a better fit and finish. (Granted, I got the Pencil tools at "scratch and dent" pricing, so my set is probably not a great "fit and finish" benchmark.) Nonetheless, I'll use 'em both with a big smile on my face.
