    Yes, trying to get three equal sides can be a challenge without a jig. I've sort of managed it but a jig makes it so much quicker and easier.

    Very informative I like your metal jigs did you use a milling machine to make these?

    Once I get my mill back together I will make some of these.

    Yes, made on my milling machine. The triangular blocks were made using a spin indexer.

    My visions of all the need toos means priorities have to be made but this appeals to me as a great way to go. Thanks.

    Unfortunately they don't make them for ER40 collets.

    No, I've not seen one for ER40. Mines designed to take 5C collets but came with an adaptor to take ER32 collets.

    You could use a ER40 hex block though for making the triangular guide:

    I like this idea. It works well.
