Lathe Machining End Mill Holder Extension

Some machining operations require a long tool holder to allow cutting tools such as an end mill to reach a part feature not accessible in any other way. Normally the shortest toll length is preferred to increase the rigidity of the tool and accuracy of the machined work piece. I show you how to make a end mill tool holder in the lathe. May be used on the lathe, or further machined to fit a collet in a milling machine spindle.
