Apologies if this is another dumb question, but...

I have a South Bend 9" lathe that I purchased as part of a lot of machine tools. With it, among other things, I got a quick change tool post and 3 tool holders. What you might call a very basic set. It is an Aloris-like arrangement, like all of them.

I wouldn't mind having a few more tool holders for this thing, but I can't find any reference to anything but motorcycles and obscure Japanese scientists when I search. If I could find holders that would work on my existing tool post and didn't cost too much, I could avoid having to make them.

So, anyone heard of Suzuki Iron works, Suzuki Tool, someone who sells (sold) their stuff, or who bought out Suzuki tool? Thanks again for any and all info.

Chances are pretty good that it's size AXA. The imports call that Series 100.

Don't worry about the brand name. The brand on mine is CHINA.

Check the MSC cataloge. They may have the tool holders. Not what I would call cheep though.

Interestingly, the model number on the tool post is "QC-100", so you're probably right, it's AXA. I'll follow up on that, then.

Thanks, all.
