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 for use with Sherline’s 13″ Mill Table. See (P/N 50180 or P/N 67050), in place of the crosslide. Other recommended optional equipment includes P/N 1294 Riser Plate 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.
