View Full Version : Touch probe and MT3 tooling

30-01-2016, 01:57 PM
Hi all,

I have a number of items that I have been hoarding for too long so they best find use in someone else's garage/workshop.

First off is a pair of as new touch off tools/probes that I bought in 2013 from Arnie on the Machsupport forum. They cost $135 each approximately £80 in todays' money. Each probe comes with the hardware to convert it to and from a touch off plate. So I have one of each. Never really got round to centring them and using them due to other projects. Now with the TTS type holders I have and the Haimer probe I cannot see using them at all.

Happy to see them go to the first person to offer me £60 each including postage.


Second set is a collection of MT3 tooling. Again redundant at this point in time.

11 piece Collet set metric , as new, never used with UNF threads for drawbar. I have two lengths of the required UNF thread bar to go with them. Bought from RGDtools in 2012 I think. These are heavy so will go out with My hermes or similar. £30 plus postage sound reasonable?


22mm face mill shell arbour from Chronos MT3 and metric thread: This bugger was pretty dear if I remember correctly. Used it maybe 4 times with a shell mill. £12 including postage


Finally, a bunch of other tooling:
Boring head (£10)
Er40 Chuck will include a wrench(£10)
Jacobs tapers of unknown size/quality, a shell mill arbor and one soft arbor to make anything out of, £15 the lot including postage.


Paypal, cash on collection or bank transfer accepted.

Drop me a PM or email through the forum.

Dang, just bought two probes from Arnie, were delivered after what felt to be years. Cost me some import tax too.

Oh well.
