  • Toolpost

    I just got off the phone with a fellow member. He is looking in to building a quick change tool post for his Taig. I am thinking of designing a wedge locking style tool post for my lathe.

    I will most likely take my Phase 2 apart. I know there is an acme or similar thread use to drive the wedge segments. I will have to calculate the movement for a small post like that would fit on the Taig.

    Has anyone have any info on this, or have a source on information on this? I know the wedge inserts will be a bit tricky, but I am willing to build fixtures. If you have an interest in this project, please let me know!

    This will take a little bit of time, but I think it will be worth it.

    Hang in there Tooljedi; the scale down is almost complete on the one we spoke of yesterday. It is probably the next project after the steadyrest. I will be on contact via the imperial net with the materials I need for the mill vice.
