Holders & Adapters
Special Holders and Adapters
Problem solving is a hallmark of Genesee engineering, and we can
manufacture precision hardened and ground spindle adapters,
micro-adapters and tool holders to meet a variety of spindle
mounting, bushing or support requirements. Examples shown here
are just a few of the solutions we provided for customers and
their unique application challenges.

Special hollow mills to machine eight different sized, eight-foot
long fiberglass mandrels.. Face plate mounted tools allowed the part to be
fed through the tool into a bushing in the spindle so that the entire
length could be hollow-milled. Prior problems with the material
"balling up" as it was machined were overcome by Genesee

This special spindle shank on a standard Genesee hollow mill allowed over the
spindle mounting of the hollow mill with an internal cutting tool mounted in
the spindle. Features of the shank include a ground bore, ground locating
hole, broached keyway, internal tool adjusting holes and internal tool
chip flow holes.
A standard Genesee hollow mill altered to be used as an end mill, then as a
hollow mill to form a diameter on a CNC machine in place of interpolation.
