Tooling Setup

Hello everyone I’m trying to learn how to setup different tooling on the 8L Lathe I can setup a left hand turning tool as well as others but I can not get a boring bar setup. I have a part that will require a left hand tool and a boring bar can someone help me out on setting these tools up thanks for your time.


I found this video to be very useful.

Hope that helps

Here is a setup that I can OD turn, ID turn, part/grooving, drill, and tap. Sometimes you can use one boring bar for both ID and OD, but you’ll have to manually change the spindle rotation in the G/M code. I believe i have a YouTube video of this setup on my channel.
