Another New Toolpost

Ok, so I built a set of toolpost and tool holders for my lathe. I loved it. Its a great design. But, I ran into a little problem… It wasn’t rigid enough. I think this was totally my fault. I had never milled anything, ever. Its not terribly accurate either. I didn’t have a mill and used the lathe.

Well, I broke down and ordered one from the LittleMachineShop.com to get my Taig lathe really running right.

So far its pretty great. Its supposedly designed by Tormach. We’ll see how that is. It looks pretty Chinese. I’m going to be ordering more tool holders from Shars soon. Its supposed to be a standard OXA aloris style wedge.
