I'm surprised everyone is complaining about the shank ha ha. If you are buying this you can at least turn it to size. But you can only do that if it is true. This is so far off true it's not funny. Maybe I received a faulty one, but if you examine them up close you will see that the head is pressed in place. Which is fine if your at least close to the center and machine it center. I used it once, tried to fix it, but the inner parts are not true to start with. Basically went into the garbage. Made my own finally. That's what happens when you get lazy and buy the cheapest. I blame myself and the drunk guy that machined it in China at 4:59pm on a Friday. The saw blades were good though.
I've been fearful of purchasing this arbor in the past, as previous reviews claimed the shank was oversized. I have a 1/2 inch end mill adapter (MT2) which I purchased from Busy Bee a while back and this arbor fits in it like a glove. So far it is working well.
Just like the other 2 reviewers said...ARBOR IS TOO BIG. Yeah, you could use this in a chuck or a collet...but you risk it spinning and then destroying it all...simply not worth it.
This will not fit in a 1/2 inch end mill adapter. The shank is oversize.
none of my 1/2 inch bore cutters fit this arbor. I haven't measured yet but suspect an oversize arbor.
