What kind of tool holder is that on the top right in the second photo?

Keyless drill Chuck for a JT6 taper

Do you know the make?

Yeah, it's the one from tormach. It's like 30 or 40 bucks.

I'd get you a link but I'm on mobile at the moment

will these fit a #2 morse taper or #9 Brown and Sharpe taper?

If you're talking about the tools, they'll fit neither one out of the gate. These are designed for Tormach Tooling System (TTS). They have a straight 0.7500 in shank on them which goes inside a 3/4" collet. If you have a 3/4" collet, these should work for you.

If you're talking about the printed part, they're too shallow to hold a collet. I made them use blind holes to make mounting them easier.

I was talking about the tools. I wanted to hold tooling with a #2 morse taper

No.2 Morse Taper typically refers to the taper in which a tool holder will use to mount to a spindle. You would need a 3/4" collet for a #2 Morse Taper. Typically these are rather rare, are you sure that's what you have?

Collets can be found here http://littlemachineshop.com/products/product_view.php?ProductID=1752&category=874479994

(if the font for this is huge, I'm sorry, I have no idea why that happened)

I have a 1947 Diamond b-12 horizontal mill with a vertical adapter. The horizontal has a #9 morse taper and the vertical has a #2 morse taper. I liked your tool holder and was hoping it would work for mine. Unfortunately it looks like it won't work.

It might actually. All these tool holders do is act as a 3/4" endmill. You place it in a 3/4" collet, the collet pullls up on it like it would an endmill and you go. If you want more information about them, or more technical knowledge on how they work, go to www.Tormach.com and talk to them. I didn't design the tooling, just the pink plasticy things.
