I was looking around for cutting tools and miscellaneous for my TA14. I found this source http://www.williamsburgautorepair.com/repair-8723e-01/tobin-arp.htm
I see they sell a variety of cutters as well as "line up tools " for both model T and model AB engines. I note that cutters using indexable carbide inserts are offered. I have just finished making a set of my own but will probably buy some of the brazed carbide ones
Les, I can't remember how I found it, but there was an outfit in St. Louis, MO that had lots of old Tobin- Arp parts. Dave in Bellingham,WA
Les. Thanks for sharing. We may need their help someday.
The line up fixtures are made by Dan Price- he has them on his website.
I just tried a google search for mr price. No luck
dan4banger.com the alignment fixtures are not on his website.
Here is his e-bay link:

Thank you for the information. I see he offers T-A conversion main caps. I "need" a set for a 2up2down project that I have the crank, cam, and rods for
I only use my Tobin Arp mostly non T projects, as I have a T specific plate mounted type for doing T babbit. Of course for "hogging out" T blocks for crank conversions, then the TA14 is the answer
The only thing with Dan's Jigs is he made the hole for a 1 & 1/8 bar which is to big.
Won't work on a Model T for Babbitt, no room.
It needs to be an inch.
I have the AB and the V8 line up fixtures.
The indexable carbide cutter really works nice for hogging out the block for big cranks, at least for me
