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 on a spacer 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 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.
