Quick Change Tool Post -BOSTAR

QCTP?

I decided to add a quick change tool post to my lathe. Its easier than dealing with shims and I can always add holders and in the future carbide tooling without too much fuss. It also looks to be much stiffer than the square tool posts.

Result?

See for yourself.

Satisfaction rating?

So far 9/10 satisfied with the tool post. Some of the fasteners are really crap quality. But I have a lathe and I can always even buy replacement fasteners and keep going. The rest of it looks wonderful. The grinding in the dovetails is top notch. Baby smooth.

Video and howto.
