Quick Change Tool Posts.|
Wedge locking system. All working parts hardened and ground.
Compatible with Aloris and Dorian tooling.
Machineable bottom holding plate allows mating to variable compound slots.
Change tools in seconds. Place the toolholder on the toolpost's dovetail, adjust the tool's height with the knurled wheel, lock the nut, and lock the wedge. No shims necessary.
Use 100 series tool holders for 100 series tool posts, 200 series tool holders for 200 series tool posts,etc.
To order the correct quick change lathe 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.
