Two-Position Tool Post (5/16″-3/8″)
Two-Position Tool Post #3008 (5/16″-3/8″)
About the Two-Position Tool Holder
It is not unusual to have to stop and change lathe tools several times while turning a part on the lathe. The change may be to switch from a left-hand tool to a right-hand tool, from a sharp-nosed tool to a radius-tipped tool, or from a roughing tool to a finishing tool. Sherline’s standard tool post is sized to handle 1/4″ cutting tools, but there are also tools available with larger shanks that can be useful for special jobs. Whatever the reason, each change requires a little setup time. This time can be reduced by using a two-position tool post.
This tool post is designed to hold a 5/16″ (8 mm) tool on one side and a 3/8″ (10 mm) tool on the other side. By having one or more of these tool posts with your favorite lathe tool pre-mounted in them, you can simplify your work and reduce the time required to change tools.
