Anyone know what this bit is called and where I might source one from?

It's used for cutting threads on lidded boxes.

We used to call them fly cutters.
Not sure where you can get them from now though.

Vermec have a complete thread cutting attachment (http://vermec.tripod.com/PDFs/threadcuttingattachment.pdf) so I'm guessing that they will have the cutters.

Did see that too Cliff, thanks :2tsup:, would be nice if he listed the cutter separately and with a price :2tsup:

Bonnie Klein sells a cutter for her Threading Jig for $31.50US.

Go to the Product Information and click on the pdf Price List and its near the bottom.

In Fred Holders Book, Making Screw Treads In Wood.

http://www.morewoodturning.net

On page 39 he said he bought a "....Morse Taper End Mill Holder with drawbar capability and a 60 degree double-angle shank type cutter that fits into it. These should be available from most metal machining equipment suppliers." (Looks much like the one you pictured.) Googled the cutter and you get some like this.

Have ordered this cutter from Bonnie Klein so hopefully I'll get it sometime by the end of the week or early next week, it's exactly what I want and is something that I can just order online which is how I mainly buy stuff like this :2tsup:

mscdirect (http://bonnieklein.com/index.htm) also stock it as this looks like it's where Bonnie Klein sources them from but after spending 5 minutes or so scrolling through their Terms & Conditions I found that for International Shipping they ship via UPS of which I won't deal with :no:
