This plain aluminum block is a quick-and-dirty holder for round shanked boring tools.
I have been struggling with this holder for some time. The problem is that it fastens to the cross slide of the lathe with a single screw. The cutting force at the tip of a long boring tool puts a lot of torque on the axis of the screw, frequently rotating the block.
This block has two holes for tool installation because the first one was botched.
