Groz QCTP coming together.
Finaly made some headway on my quick change tool post today . I have been held up by milling machine breakdowns and guess what the good old Hafco broke down again today . The coolant pump stopped working. I ended up just putting a drum of coolant ontop of the mill and gravity feeding . Works better than the crap coolant pump that comes with the mill . At least it was still milling thats something.
Have got the block done except for the locking lever . Just using a stud and nut from my clamp kit at the moment.
Got all the dovetails cut and the five tool holder blanks are chopped off.
I settled on a modified Groz design. It works like a groz but the locking dovetail is not sawn right off. Instead it has a partial cut terminating at a 13mm hole.
This gives enough spring lock and unlock. If it gives any trouble in the future then I can always just finish the saw cut and install a hinge pin like a normal groz.
Still got some work to do but theses photos give the idea so far.
Thanks to those who helped and advised me , mainly krisfarm and DaveJ.
