View Full Version : Import Alloris type tool holders?

09-02-2014, 11:26 AM
I have a Jet 1340 lathe I bought used and it has an import dovetail type tool post I would like to purchase more tool holders but there are several different sizes how do I measure them to know what size I have? I know I could make them but I don't have time and would like to just add a few more holders of the right size. This tool post and holders came with the machine so I have no idea where they were purchased. I know I had a SB 10K and it used smaller holders.

Thanks Mike

Google the specs, hundreds of images out there.

Look at the numbers. AXA = 1xx, BXA = 2xx, CXA = 3xx, etc.

Dimensions are in the Aloris catalog.
