    That's right and it always seems to be in the way but with out it the tooling would move.

    This is a good example where my radius form tool hit's the screw. I know....... I made the form tool too long.

    Why does the center hole have a plug instead of a set screw socket?
    Maybe someone screwed in the set screw the wrong way around by hand?

    I've got the equivalent tool holder for the KDK 100 fitted to the WADE 94. I've used a few times. It can come in handy when the tool you have ground that will do the job needs to be held at some odd angle, and I don't want to move the tool post as it's set for some other tools on other holders.

    I've run three tools in the block also. each doing a separate operation . In series though, I didn't have a production need that all the tools needed to be cutting metal at the same time. ;-)
    Mostly, it's a great large surface to set the mag base indicators.......

    Hi,

    Yes you can stagger the tooling stickout. Just need accurate stops to set the lengths.

    I wonder if you could stagger two or three tools in it. Set them out to different distances from the holder. Left one for turning a short length, middle for a short facing operation, and the right one to chamfer the edge. Or something like that.

I have an AXA tool post mounted to the side of our CNC mill to use as a lathe. This would solve a problem I have with keeping the post aligned but adjusting the tool angle as needed.
    It is NOT an AXA, it's a smaller series made for lathes such as the 9X 20. Perfect size for that lathe Bob.

    Would be perfect for the front of the spindle housing on my CNC mill when running in 4th axis lathe mode.

    I would like to have one. Cut a profile in a slab of tool steel and Iit would be super replicator.

    That's a no. 6 toolholder. You can hold multiple toolbits at once if you like, or you can use it to hold form tooling. I'm sure there are other uses as well.

    I used to own one of those, never used it either. But it's real, and worth some $$ if you sell it.

    Id guess at a form tool holder or maybe the cutter maker utilised a QC toolpost to hold blanks for grinding, thinking wood shaper cutters.

    It is a set-screw holder

    Also made by Aloris, they are for gang tool holding or holding a wide form tool, for instance.

    Frank Ford found another use for one, clever and handy for those small parts;
