Specially designed to work with GROOVE ‘N TURN® inserts, this toolholder will replace several existing toolholder styles. GROOVE ‘N TURN® toolholders can be used on conventional, Swiss and CNC machines to hold grooving and face grooving inserts in sizes from .004 in to .150 in and threading inserts. They are available in square shank sizes 5/16 in through 1-1/4 in with straight and 90 deg presentations.
