    Yes. Dimensions C will be shorter for the CT tool holder.

    This is the closest I found, overall length is a bit shorter as well.

    Thank you!

    I'll wait until you get home. I sent an email to EMI as well.
    Don't want to mess this up.
    Thank you!

    Here is what Aaron at EMI said about swapping from BT40 to CT40:

    "There is way more involved in that. We have had our serviceman do a swap once and between parts and labor (you need a service man very familiar with this tool changer setup) it was well over a $6000.00 event and this was in 2010. That is not a project we would recommend taking on. In fact, you can buy a used Bridgeport machining center ready for CT tooling for the cost of what it would take to change from BT to CT."

    Any news on the dimensions Cooperjm and the statement from EMI? I can't see why it wouldn't work other than the threads for the CT40 tool holder the dimensions are otherwise the same?
    Thanks

    I just spent 30 minutes looking for those to pull studs that I have. I cannot locate them at this time. I do apologize.

    If you go look up the taper length 4bt 40 compared to a cat 40 that different should be similar to the difference in the pool stud length.


    I know Aaron and Mark a EMI. I believe that they have experience with this that I do not. I do know that I put a cat 40 with a short stud and my spindle. I cannot guarantee what the drawbar pressure was though.

    I'm confused. So you did do this conversion or not?
    Is the pull stud the same as the BT40 with the exception that it has the 5/8"-11 thread?

    Apologize for the confusion. I never said I did the conversion. I had a cat 40 tool that I used in My BT machine. I change that to out by hand. I do not have the tool anymore but I kept the pull studs in case I ever needed them again.

    I'm not sure what else you would have to change out to do the conversion. I did see a forum post that talked about doing the conversion some years ago. I know the tool change height needs to be adjusted when you switch to different tool holders.
