  • QC tool post

    Searching Ebay, and wide range or prices. Seems Aloris and Dorian command the best price. Are the knock offs any good? Quite a bit of difference in price.

    I use a import QC tool post.. like it just fine. Much better then the old lantern tool post. I'm sure you'd like any over the old one.

    Wow... where did the time go. I could of swore I was only out there for an hour.

      No doubt that Aloris & Dorian are the best of the best. Friend has an Aloris, and the feel is silky, like an old Starrett micrometer.

      I bought the import version from Penn Tool Co. and use it daily. It's well finished for Chinese mfg, and costs 20% of the USA brands.

      The wedge type is more accurate than the piston (and higher priced) -- it uses a tapered sliding wedge to lock the toolholder.

      I'd buy the Aloris/Dorian if cost is no object. The Penn Tool version is a dead copy, not as perfectly finished.
