All-steel, wedge type quick change tool post set.
It is the perfect size for bench lathes. The tool holders have been designed specifically to work on lathes that have limited distance from the top of the compound to the center of the lathe. This tool post mounts with a threaded adapter stud, which is included.
All working parts are hardened and ground. It is completely sealed for maintenance-free operation.
This set includes the tool post and the following tool holders:
2 - #1 Turning & Facing
1 - #2 Boring, Turning & Facing
1 - #4 Heavy Duty Boring will hold both 3/8 and 1/2 boring bars
Chris' Tips This QCTP is a bolt-on accessory for the mini lathe.
To mount this QCTP on other small lathes, you may have to make a bushing or re-work the center stud so that you can mount it to a smaller threaded hole
See the comparison chart of the quick change tool post sets we carry.The 0XA quick change tool post and the associated tool holders were developed by Tormach and LittleMachineShop.com in cooperation.
The 0XA tool post and tool holders were optimized to work with all versions of mini lathes, including 7x10, 7x12, 7x14 and 7x16 mini lathes.
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.
