We finished this tool in 3 days.   Attached is the picture of the tool.  We started with a 35mm blank that was 4″ long.   The max diameter is 1.151.  Shank diameter is 100 inch and the minor step is just under 3/4″.  The point is a precision drill point with custom geometry to minimize wear when machining cast iron.   The customer did not have time to coat the tool.

It worked well, the parts are being shipped to the customer for inspection. We had a scare yesterday, the milling machine had an error and threw the Cat 50 holder out of the spindle, but the tool was ok. – Customer
