Insert tooling screws
« on: October 31, 2017, 07:12:56 AM »
Does anyone know of an alternative source for screws suitable for holding inserts into Glanze tooling?

e.g. see the bottom of this page: https://www.glanze.co.uk/acatalog/Replacement_Inserts___Spares.html

2 each (and no multipacks available at a reasonable price), well, Dick Turpin would have been proud... I've lost about 1/2 dozen of these over the years, would like to buy a bag of about 20, but not for 48!
Cheers!
Ade.

Good spot, thanks!

Out of stock of the M2.5, unfortunately  :(

I did find a load on AliExpress - $8.77 (delivered) for a bag of 100; I figured it was worth the risk, shame about the 20-40 days postage.... hopefully they won't take that long. I'll have a few spares left over from that batch, if they fit, which I'll be happy to pass on in smaller numbers if anyone needs spares.  :thumbup:
Cheers!

Much to my surprise, my bag of Chinesium screws arrived yesterday  :clap: so this morning I popped down the shed to see if they worked. And they do!  :beer:

Now all I have to do is locate the toolholders in my bomb site of a workshop, er, and make a stack of QCTP holders for them, and I'm good to go  :thumbup:

Anyway... now I have 100 of the little blighters... hopefully I'll never need that many, so if anyone needs a few to replenish their stock & doesn't fancy paying 2 each.... I'm happy to fire a few your way for the cost of postage. Just drop me a PM. I do intend to keep hold of some myself, so don't go asking for 50.... first come, first served... Oh, yeah, and it's worth asking before I lose them...

If you'd rather have your own bag of 100 for less than $9, here's the link.
Cheers!
Ade.

If you wait a few days, there'll be a 25% discount on them! I think they were on offer when I bought them, as they're slightly more expensive at the moment. Still MILES cheaper than any of the alternatives though!
