DIAMOND FILE SET
CARBIDE FORSTNER BIT SETS
"Eighths Set"
Includes Sizes 1/4" through 2 1/8"
in 1/8th inch Increments

Since the discontinuation of the Forstner Bits I used on my Peppermill DVD, I have been looking for a carbide set as a replacement. This set cuts extremely well in hard timbers like Cocobolo, Tamboti, Lignum Vitae, and Ebony as well as Ash, Oak and Maple. They are quick and efficient, and can be resharpened using the Diamond File Set shown at right. 16 bits come organized in a wooden case as shown.

Eighths Set -CF18E $164.50

Diamond File Set
5 piece set includes round, square, triangular, half-round and flat files.

Great for sharpening carbide Forstner Bits or carbide router bits. I use these on my Forstner Bits after drilling 150 or so peppermills. If your bits are smoking, drilling larger holes than the bit size or drilling with the tail stock seems harder, you need to sharpen. You'll experience less stress on the wood, your lathe and your body.

Bits are equipped with a hex shape for a non-slip fit.
"Sixteenths Set"
Includes Sizes 5/16" through 2 1/16"
in 1/8th inch Increments

If you make production mills, this set will complete the above set with the "in-between" sizes. You can always "scrape-up" a shallow hole 1/16" when making one or two mills, but if you make mills in quantity, this will speed up the boring process and drill accurately sized holes quickly with much less effort. 15 bits come in a wooden case as shown.

Sixteenth Set -CF116T $158.95

Diamond Dresser
This 0.25 carat Diamond Dresser makes trueing abrasive grinding wheels fast and easy while exposing a fresh surface for efficient grinding operations.

Simply guide the Diamond Dresser against the grinder's tool rest to restore the wheel back to its optimal cutting action. Overall length is 6 5/8" long with a 3 3/4" long handle. The industrial diamond measures
0.25 carat.

Diamond Dresser -DDR10

1/32 - 1/2" Jacobs Chuck with JT6 Taper
You need to purchase the accompanying Morse Taper adapter at right to fit your lathe's headstock or tailstock.

Great for boring holes in peppermill bodies using Forstner and Brad Point bits. Comes with a Jacobs key to change bits easily, or get several chucks and chuck a different bit in each for production drilling and rarely change bits again.
