    I have to use the old ones a lot to be able to lock them onto a die body and chuck it up in the lathe. They work pretty good for that purpose, I doubt the new ones would have the same utility.

    Have the throats honed to .477" if you want to use those maybe? That sure is a purty one you got there! I am sure somebody in Finland has a Sunnen or equivalent Finnish made honing machine.
