As you know I have been an advocate of modifying tool holders meant for larger lathes to be used on smaller bench top lathes. I have several of these holders I personally use on my Asian lathe. I wanted an objective opinion so I found a holder on e-bay inexpensive and modified with dovetails and adjustment to fit an A size bock and sent it to a fellow You Tube contributor. He did a review on the tool in this video, I am putting the link up so members of this board can check it out.

Interesting idea. Do you have any pictures of the tool holder before you modified it?
