Product Description

About the Quick-Change Tool Post System

This accessory brings to your Sherline lathe the ability to change tools quickly and easily. It uses a dovetail design to locate removable holders in a fashion similar to that used in production machine shops. Included with the case hardened steel tool post are three interchangeable steel holders designed to hold a 1/4″ cutting tool, a 3/8″ diameter boring tool, and a Sherline cutoff tool. Each holder has two knurled brass knobs; the lower knob allows you to easily adjust the height of the tooltip, while the upper brass knob locks the height in place. Changing tool holders is simply a matter of releasing the locking screw on the tool post, sliding out one tool holder, sliding in another and re-locking. If you find your jobs require a lot of tool changes, this timesaving accessory will make your projects that much more of a pleasure.

The tool post has two machined dovetails to accept the various holders. The three holders below the tool post (pictured above) come with the set. They hold a 3/8″ round boring bar, a 1/4″ HSS cutting tool, and a cut-off blade. A clamp and T-nut are included.

What’s included:

Pictured below are two optional holders. P/N 2282 holds 3/8″ square shank tools. P/N 2295 comes with a 55° carbide insert. The post and holders are all machined from steel and have a black oxide finish. Knurled brass knobs adjust tool height.
