    What is the difference between the wedge type and piston type "Aloris" style tool posts? I see a big difference in price and wonder if the more expensive one is worth the difference.

    The wedge type is more repeatable when removing and reinstalling the tool holders. It may hold tighter as well.
    If you are in a production or similar environment, changing toolholders frequently and making multiple identical parts, the wedge is the way to go. Otherwise, there is not a major benefit.
