Single-Position 1/4″ Tool Post


SKU: 40180 Category:

Product Description

This tool post is included with the 4000-series basic lathe. It holds 1/4″ square shank cutting tools and is not adjustable for height. If the tip of a reground tool is not on center compared to your part, inserting a small piece of shim stock under the tool may be necessary to bring it up to centerline height. If shim stock is not available, cigarette paper works well as a thin shim or a business card makes a suitable thicker shim.


The improper use of machine tools and their accessories can result in serious injury. Before using this tool, thoroughly read the instructions and make sure you understand its proper and safe use.


Always wear safety glasses when operating machine tools.
