RE: [southbend10k] Re: Phase II toolpost
Once you get your QCUP you will find you will want to get lots of tool holders. Then you need to organize them.
I have a Heavy 10 and a (much) modified 9” both with QCTP. I machined a washer to put under the 10L TP so once the tool is set on either lathe its set for either lathe.
Organizing them took some time. I eventually made some custom peg board holders. I took a scrap piece of stock and made a bending/brazing jig by drilling three holes.
I first bent some 3/16 rod (first attachment) and then gas welded the twp pieces together. I added a cross brace free hand.
Now all my tools are organized.
