These sets include the tool post and five tool holders: one each of holder style #1, #2, #4, #7, and #10.
To order the correct tool post for your machine, measure the CENTER HEIGHT of your lathe: this is the distance from the height of the top of the lathe's compound rest to the height of the spindle/chuck centerline.
Match your lathe's center height to a toolpost with a compatible center height range.
In situations where your lathe will accommodate more than one size tool post, secondary variables (such as swing, tool size capacity, rigidity, etc.) should then be considered to select the post that you want for your machine.
Check the individual listings of the different style toolholders below to see the capacities of each series.
