  • Turret Tool Post Holders

    My lathe has a square turret type tool post.
    I've been looking for tool holders that will accept parting, knurling, and boring bars; thus far with no success.
    Perhaps I've just been looking in the wrong places.
    The type holders that I am seeking, look like the holders that mount onto a quick change tool post that utilizes a dovetail for holder attachment, except that they have a 1/2" square side extension that allows it to be clamped in the turret's clamping channel.
    Are these type tool holders available, and if so; from whom?

    You might try MSC at the link below.

      One of first places I checked was MSC.
      My MSC catalog isn't the latest, but it does show a turret tool post with a line drawing that shows the type of tool holders that I'm looking for.
      However, I couldn't find these type of tool holders in the MSC catalog!
      Stikes me as a bit strange that they would sell the turret post but not any of the tool holders for it.

          Hey, Bob! My old Logan had just the standard lantern type tool post so I made a square tool holder for it that takes 4 3/8" square tool bits and made a 6 position holder for the tail stock. Lots of learning experience in that!!
