    What I did for a mates mill was make up short sections with male and female threads so that once screwed into a BT holder it mimicked an INT one. That way the same drawbar could be used on all tooling.

    Hi all had a good day today first got the power sorted then spent a few hours cleaning looks a different machine now I am amazed how quiet it runs for some reason I though it would have been nosier, apart from the frayed or perishes stop start switch and having to make a new oil sight glass it runs as sweet as a sewing machine, power up down in out and power feed left and right with a rapid speed as well, and I have read some scary stories of the oil pumps not working this ones great and windows to see the oil flowing. I did take out approx 5 and half gallons of cutting fluid out of the bottom tank expecting it to be full of sludge but very clean so apart from the filthy condition she's a beaut.
    Now have to start learning about milling speeds and feeds.
    It still on the trailer that was a good move as its kept all the cleaning fluid (red diesel )off the floor of the shop, plus it hasn't been to back breaking for father.
    I was thinking of painting yesterday Its almost the same color as my Colchester lathe but after a good clean I am in two mind now.
    If I get time tomorrow I may start to move the tool room round ready for a lift off from my friends telehandler.

    Cheers
    Jord

    Most of those are int, the ones with a cut out in the side are Herbert flash tooling

    If that pic is the tools you bought then you are set.

    They are Int 40 and not BT for CNC.
    You can tell as there is no tool change retaining collar and the extra threaded area on the ends would not be there with BT.

    They should work for you with no modification.
