    Need a #1MT spur drive bit for lathe

    I'm very needy this week. I found a #1 Morse Taper drive spur at Highland, will cost me about $16 w/shipping which is fair but before giving them my money is there anyone around Wake County that has a spare they would like to sell? It's an uncommon size, I think only Sears Craftsman still uses them but nevertheless Sears doesn't sell them anymore.

    This GP has oddball sizes, a #1MT in the headstock and a #0MT in the tailstock. Try finding 0MT accessories, yeah. Luckily I have a dead center but no spur and I need one to turn this pulley.

    Re: Need a #1MT spur drive bit for lathe

    Hey Rick, no help w/ the spur center, but I do have a "period correct" Jacobs chuck (made in England) for a #1MT I picked up for a lathe project that I've since passed along. My new project uses a #2MT, so it's just sitting on a shelf.

    If you're interested, I'm sure we can work something out.

    I'm interested but it's a low priority. My tailstock is a 0MT so the chuck would only fit my headstock and I'm not sure how useful that would be.

    I was at both places today and they didn't have any in-store. Woodcraft is about $15 more than Highland, almost 2X the price. Harbor Freight carries chucks but no spurs.


    I actually can turn the pulley without the spur by using my screw chuck and drilling out progressively larger holes after I'm done turning, it just seemed easier with a spur and boring once.

    Wow, yeah 0MT may be hard to find - I missed that in your first post. Check in w/ the guys @ OWWM.com, I'm sure someone has some accessories that they will pass along.

    good luck!

    Re: Need a #1MT spur drive bit for lathe

    For what it's worth, Grizzly has a MT1 drive for $5.99:

    I hoped they might have some MT0 accessories for you but apparently not.

    I've seen that and it has those funky spurs with a gradual ramp and dull points. They don't look like they would hold well.

    Yeah I can't comment on the quality of the product. But if money is tight it would get you going.
