Harold,

Question, you use the term "Lathe knife tool" I am trying to sort out what that
means in American. Are you referencing a Parting tool? or something else.

Thanks.

That is what I ask in the second post here and still no answer. I think he's just a spamer as far as I can see.

I think his terms "lathe knife tool" refer to his sharpening device used with a bench grinder for sharpening all sorts of lathe bits, knives and milling cutters. If you look at the video it starts to make some sense of these terms.

Sorry Lew but the way you phrased the question I thought someone is bound to give an answer. Incidentally, I remember conversing many years ago with someone having your name, did you ever take the Model Engineers' Workshop magazine.

As to Spam, I would be interested in hearing your definition when I may be able to agree or disagree.

So to answer your question Lew, and similarly from “Shade Tree Welder”. A “Lathe Knife Tool” is a tool predominately used to reduce a parts diameter when feeding it from right to left. Less used my most, but a left hand Knife Tool are used for feeding left to right. They can also be used for end facing.

In all my years of machining I've never heard an HSS cutting tool referred to as a "Lathe Knife Tool". If you're supposedly coming here to educate then you should at least understand what it is you're describing and get the terms right. I think the majority of us here are familiar with HSS tools and the concept of LH and RH cutters--it's only because of your weird descriptions that everyone is confused...

I figured it was something simple. I would call that a turning tool,
you can also add the RH or LH designation if you like or Neutral.

'Never did hear it called' a knife tool... must be a limey thing.

I find it surprising that the terminology used in another county cannot on this forum be accepted but realise such differences can create problems. The name Knife Tool can though be easily resolved by a quick visit to Google.

My books having been published in the US for a few years, by a US publisher, and sold in large numbers yet I have not had one person questioning a word.

My main purpose of publicizing my videos, showing my grinding rest being used, on this and other forums, has been to make known to those who have made one over the last 14 years that I have now produced videos to help them understand the method of using them. Maybe, no one on this forum has made one, but with it being made in the hundreds, publicizing them on many forums was the only way to attempt this.

However, as it would appear that I am not welcome here, which is not the case on all the others forums I visit, except for three, maybe four individuals, I will quietly depart.

Sorry "Shade Tree Welder"

Harold

People that join and do not participate are not really here.
or that falls into the category as Spam or troll.

Honestly, I think you guys ran off a potentially good member.
