Sherline 3008 Two-position Tool Post 3/8 in 5/16 in
It is not unusual to have to stop and change lathe tools several times while turning a part on the lathe. The change may be to switch from a left-hand tool to a right-hand tool, from a sharp-nosed tool to a radius-tipped tool, or from a roughing tool to a finishing tool.
Sherline’s standard tool post is sized to handle 1/4″ cutting tools, but there are also tools available with larger shanks that can be useful for special jobs. Whatever the reason, each change requires a little setup time. This time can be reduced by using a two-position tool post.
This tool post is designed to hold a 5/16″ (8mm) tool on one side and a 3/8″ (10mm) tool on the other side. By having one or more of these tool posts with your favorite lathe tool pre mounted in them, you can simplify your work and reduce the time required to change tools.
Other special tool posts are also available: P/N 3003, 2-position tool post, 1/4″-1/4″ for standard size lathe tools P/N 3057, Rocker tool post P/N 7600, 3/8″ Insert holder tool post (3/8″ square and round)
