This package contains all the tooling you need to be productive with your 9x20 lathe on the first day you own it.

The AXA (Series 100) quick change tool post set (QCTP) includes the tool post, a turning & facing tool holder, a boring, turning & facing tool holder, a heavy duty boring bar holder, a universal parting blade holder, a knurling, facing & turning tool holder. The quick change tool post is made from hardened steel. No tools are required to change tools. Additional tool holders are available. It may require some work in order to make a T-slot nut, to mount this QCTP on your lathe.

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

The 1/2" capacity drill chuck is mounted on a standard 2 Morse taper shank. The rated capacity of the drill chuck is 1 mm (0.039") to 13 mm (0.512").

The set of 3/8" shank indexable turning tools includes 5 tools (TAR, TAL, TBR, TBL, TE), inserts, a wrench, and extra screws. It comes in a fitted case. The carbide inserts are TCMT21.51.

The carbide tipped 9-piece boring bar set includes three different length boring bars each for minimum bores of 5/16", 3/8", and 7/16". The bore depth ranges from 3/4" to 2-1/4". The heat treated, alloy steel shanks are held to 0.000 to -0.0005" from the nominal diameter.

The P1X parting blade is 5/64" x 1/2" x 4-1/2" and made from M2 HSS. These T-shape parting blades provide great side clearance.

This package includes 5 different sizes of combined drills and countersinks, commonly called center drills. The center drill set is high speed steel and includes sizes 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. These are 60 degree center drills. These are the sizes that are most used by bench top machinists.

Chris Chris' Tips
See the comparison chart of the quick change tool post sets we carry.

Here are instructions for mounting the QCTP on many different lathes.

This kit comes with 1/2" boring bars which can be held in the #2 tool holder from the AXA set - Turning & Boring Tool Holder. The dedicated boring bar holder that comes in the AXA set holds 5/8" and 3/4" which we feel are too large for a lathe of this size.

Make sure you get the correct inserts and retaining screws for your indexable turning tools.

Our chart of indexable inserts shows which inserts and which screw to use with each of our indexable tools.

P-type cut-off (or parting) blades are T-shaped (don't ask). Because the body of the tool is narrower than the cutting tip, friction is reduced making the difficult task of parting off somewhat easier.

Size P1 blades are 1/16" wide and are the most commonly-used size. P1N blades are 0.040" wide. These thinner blades are good for small work. P1X blades are 5/64" wide. Use these thicker blades for parting off larger diameters where you need additional stiffness.

It is easier to part off large diameters if you cut a groove that is wider than the cut-off blade. First, make a cut about 0.100" deep. Now back out and move over at least 0.010". Cut in again, widening the slot. Continue with this cut until you are 0.100" deeper than the first slot. Repeat this process, moving back and forth, until you are through.

Combined drills and countersinks, commonly called center drills, are used to produce a center hole on a workpiece for turning between centers. Center drills are also used to start drilled holes. Because they are very stiff they don't have a tendency to wander.


Here are the sizes of center drills.
Number Body Dia. Drill Dia. Length
1 1/8" 3/64" 1 1/4"
2 3/16" 5/64" 1 7/8"
3 1/4" 7/64" 2"
4 5/16" 1/8" 2 1/8"
5 7/16" 3/16"  2 3/4"
