The quick change tool post is a wedge-type made of all steel. No tools are required to change tools. Additional tool holders are available. This tool post mounts on the existing stud. On most 8x12 and 8x14 lathes you must reduce the height of the boss on the top of the compound.
The turning tool holders accept tools with 1/4" to 1/2" shank. The boring tool holder accepts boring bars with up to 3/8" 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 indexable turning tools includes 5 tools (TAR, TAL, TBR, TBL, TE), inserts, a wrench, and extra screws. It comes in a wooden 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 P1 parting blade is 1/16" x 1/2" x 4-1/2" and made from M2 HSS. These T-shape parting blades provide great side clearance.
This package includes 4 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, and 4. These are 60 degree center drills. These are the sizes that are most used by bench top machinists.
Chris' Tips This QCTP is not a good fit for the mini lathe. It requires about 3/4" from the top of the compound to the centerline of the lathe. Get the 3112 QCTP instead.
This QCTP is great for most lathes up to 8" swing.The 0XA quick change tool post and the associated tool holders were developed by Tormach and LittleMachineShop.com in cooperation.See the comparison chart of the quick change tool post sets we carry.The two 0XA tool posts (3112 and 3048) are the same except for the cut-off tool holder.
The 3112 has a cut-off tool holder that mounts the blade horizontally. Thus it can be used on lathes that have only 5/8” from the top of the compound to the centerline of the lathe, like the 7x mini lathes.
The 3048 has a cut-off tool holder that mounts the blade at a 4 degree angle. It needs ¾” from the top of the compound to the centerline because of the angled cut off blade.Here are instructions for mounting the 0XA QCTP.Here's a video that shows how to mount this QCTP on a Grizzly G0768 8x20 lathe.
