3/8 Inch Gang-Tooling Tool

Sherline designed a gang-tooling tool post specifically for their customers who want to convert their Sherline lathe into a “Chucker Lathe” or gang-tooling lathe. This tool post will also be the standard tool post that they will offer with their CNC Chucker Lathe (currently in development).

This gang-tooling tool post offers a convenient and accurate way to hold up to four tools with a known centerline-to-centerline distance of 1.500″. This tool post has (4) 3/8″ holes to hold boring bars, drill chucks, or tool bushings with two locking screws for each tool.

Considerations Regarding This Tool Post and Its Possible End Uses

There are many considerations regarding this tool post and its possible end uses. Please check the instructions for a complete list. This tool post is designed to be used with our 13″ Mill Table (P/N 50180 or P/N 67050). Use it in place of the crosslide. Other recommended optional equipment includes P/N 1294 Riser Plate. Use this in order for your tools to be on centerline with the headstock spindle.

While the gang-tooling tool post will mount on the 6″ and 8″ crosslides, its size renders it unusable on either of these crosslides.
