    Here it is. Smaller than I pictured in my mind when looking at the online photo, but a gorgeous, well made tool.

I've got 3 of the things, one for the shop, jump bag and travel kit.
    I combined the TL-CN32 (HG) with the TL-CN34 (HG-EV) to make an 11-speed compatible, wood-handled tool. I stole the idea from Nick Murdick at Shimano. The handles are Dalbergia nigra rosewood, which has been considered an endangered species since 1992. In 2009, a political crisis in Madagascar led to increased illegal logging of rosewood, then an increased awareness of illegal logging, and finally a crackdown by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on its import. Remember the Gibson guitar factory raid?

    Presumably Shimano stopped making the HG tool with rosewood handles and switched to the TL-CN33 (HG tool, plastic handle) around this time. For the foreseeable future I wouldn't expect to see rosewood handles ever again.

    Should have known Mr. Murdick was behind such an idea.

    Got it yesterday and used it today. What a great tool. Engages the cassette lockring in a solid, positive way and makes a tough job easy. Why didn't I have one of these years ago. I was a third world country, but now, with this Crombie, I'm the USA!

    funny, I wouldn't have guessed that was rosewood from the pic. It's hard to get legal rosewood, I've heard that a lot of the supposedly legally grown stuff wasn't. Lots of other woods would work though

    Call me a hack, but I've been using my (rosewood-handled!) TL-CN32 on non-Campy 11s chains for a few years without issue. Is the spacing from the fence to the back plate different?

    As for the legality and sustainability of rosewood, I think this is a smart move. At our regional product launch though, Shimano sold it as a "green" move... Which smacks loudly of bullshit, coming from one of the most thoroughly-overly-packaged parts companies in the world.

    Premature. And that's ok with me, 'cause I'm pretty damn excited about this.

    Are you referring to the TL-CN33?

    Most importantly (to me) I was told a certain fluid pump I have wont suffice...the coolant pump from a horizontal band saw.

    Your band saw pump is designed for flow and isn't designed to create pressure, or at least not very much. water cooled tig setups take ~50psi by the book and you'll be hard pressed to get half that out of a pond pump or something similar. That kind of pump can work with light duty and they are quite wich is nice. There's a couple of good threads on weldingweb.com with good info. The tried and true method is to use the pro-con pump and a 1/4 or 1/3 hp motor. I used an air regulator to throttle back the pressure a bit. I also added a full sized car radiator to my setup. The hot water flows through that before dumping back into the reservoir. I wanted the extra cooing capacity for doing some liquid cooled welding fixtures that I haven't got around to building. I got all the cooler parts from Amazon and could dig up part numbers if you really needed them. Than only part that's a PITB is making/sourcing the left hand thread adapters for the lines. I'm not sure why miller/weldcraft decided that was necessary but it kind of sucks. I wound up buying a tap and making some, I could make a pair for you if need be.

    Thanks for that. I would be interested in the pump you use and the rpm your spinning it at. The impeller speed could reduce the strain on the engine/pump in your setup if a slower motor was picked...

    you just used a shaft coupler to hold it to the engine i assume, or is that a special bracket/motor to bolt to the pump?

    That setup is basically what I was considering building.
    PM me if you think Im cluttering the thread.

    that looks like a procon vane pump Standard Vane Pump Products - Procon Products | Positive Displacement Rotary Vane Pumps
    There are "pump motors" that couple to those pumps. Our motor is a Marathon. The shaft on our motor is split, and the pump has a rectangular input shaft, so you need a special coupler.

    You could probably get a 3 phase pump motor and a vfd to slow it down, probably too much effort

    Eric is spot on. The pump and motor are mated to each other. I didn't come across any motors of that style that were variable speed or turned at a different speed.

    Moved this into my shop yesterday after moving a much smaller version out on Saturday.

    The tools it uses are only slightly bigger

    I needed a lathe bigger than the one I had, but certainly don't need one this big. With an 80mm through bore, I doubt I'll ever utter the phrase, "I wish I had a bigger lathe"

    If you're thinking I got these just because they are green you would be mostly correct. I also wanted to see if they lived up to the hype.
