Considerations Regarding This Tool Post and Its Possible End Uses
There are many considerations regarding this tool post and its possible end uses. Please check the instructions for a complete list (click on the Instructions tab above to download the document). This tool post is designed to be used with our 13″ Mill Table in place of the lathe crosslide. Other recommended optional equipment includes either a Riser Plate for 8″ Crosslide or a Riser Plate for 13″ Crosslide in order for your tools to be on center-line with the headstock spindle.
NOTE: While the gang-tooling tool post will mount on the 6″ and 8″ crosslides, its size renders it unusable on either of these crosslides.
