Quick Change Tool Posts

We offer an array of quick change tool posts for small lathes. You can choose from steel or aluminum construction, in a range of sizes. Here is a page that will help you choose the correct quick change tool post set for your lathe.

The compatibility list shows which tool posts are available for several different lathes. The specifications list provides details about each quick change tool post set. Note that all these tool posts fit many more lathes than the ones in the list. If you lathe is not listed, look at how your tool post is mounted and find something similar.

The compatibility list provides details of the tool post mounting. Even if your lathe is not listed, you can still figure out which QCTP will work on your lathe. For example, if your tool post mounts with an M8 bolt or stud, you can use any QCTP listed for the Prazi D400 lathe.

The A2Z CNC quick change tool post sets come with mounting hardware for a particular application. The 0XA quick change tool post sets come with an M10 mounting stud and a block out of which you can make a T-slot nut. This makes it a bolt-on for mini lathes and many other lathes. It's easily adaptable, with a custom stud or a bushing to many other mounting configurations. The AXA and BXA quick change tool post sets usually require that you do some machining to mount them.

The 0XA Series 000 quick change tool post sets are differentiated only by the tool holders; the tool posts are identical. The tool holders in the Tormach QCTP set (PN 3112) are designed specifically to work on the mini lathe. They only require 5/8" from the top of the compound rest to the centerline of the lathe. The 3048 QCTP set requires 3/4" from the top of the compound to the centerline of the lathe. This QCTP is a good fit for 8 and 9" lathes.
