This quick change tool post set (QCTP) includes the tool post, mounting hardware, two turning tool holders, a boring tool holder and a cut-off blade holder.

Made by A2Z CNC.

The turning tool holders accept tools up to 3/8" shank. The boring tool holder accepts boring bars with 3/8" shanks. The cut-off tool holder holds 1/2" tall parting blades.

This tool post includes the parts to mount on Prazi SD300 and SD400 lathes, many Emco lathes, and other lathes that secure the tool post with an M8 bolt. On the SD300 you can only use tools with up to 5/16" shank. Fits the Proxxon PD400 with a 1/4" (6 mm) spacer under the tool post.

This fits the Emco Compact 8 with a shop-made center post. See the drawing in Chris' Tips. You can use tool bits up to 5/16" shank, but can't use the cut-off tool holder.
