    Hi All,
    A couple of days ago I had an email from Warco advertising their spring sale.

    One of the many items on sale is a Lathe fine drilling attachment

    https://www.warco.co.uk/metal-lathe...sitive-drilling-attachment-for-tailstock.html

    After breaking a few fine drills recently I have been considering buying/making something. When I saw that they have been reduced to £32.50 it was a no brainer.
    It arrived today and I have just unpacked it. I have to say that I am really impressed by the quality of materials used.

    The chuck takes 0-10mm drill bits and the chuck is a friction taper fit on the unit so if the drill sticks the chuck will spin. It's available with either 2 or 3MT tapers to fit the tailstock.

    I have no affiliation with Warco I am just impressed with this particular item. Actually being a tight Yorshireman I bought a couple of other items to take it up to the £50 free postage threshold. What I would have paid for postage has almost paid for a set of telescoping bore gauges.

    Nice ..... not sure if I'd have enough room to fit one, looks like I'll have to stick with collets.
