An ingenious design from Mr. J. C. Payne, patent holder for the Quick-Step Mill.
What is unusual here is that the Die Holder is prevented from rotating by an adjustable double cone clutch, similar in action to a car’s synchroniser. Moving the handle either side of its mid position causes the clutch to engage. Relax pressure on the handle and the Die Holder will again rotate and thus the die stops cutting. Very useful when screwing up to a shoulder.
This tool, the ultimate tailstock die holder, will hold all common die diameters (1 5/16", 1", 13/16", 5/8" or metric equivalents). The kit includes our latest drawings together with all necessary materials. The arbor is supplied ground and hardened with a soft "business end". Choose an MT2 or MT3 Arbor to match your tailstock.
