[atlas_craftsman] quick change toolposts
- I purchased the Harbor Freight toolpost. The footprint on the quick change
toolpost is 2.5 by 2.5 inches. If your lathe has a flat surface unlike mine
the toolpost will need a spacer underneath plus you'll need to change the
metric adjustment set screws. As is the threads actually engaging the thread
adjustment nut is about half of the nut. This setting is for 3/8 toolbits.
You cannot use 1/2 toolbits if you have to use a spacer. After a while I went
back to using my block toolholders ( homebuilt).
