TOOLPOST TURRET ASSEMBLY
FOUR POSITION TOOLPOST TURRET ASSEMBLY
This is a 4 position toolpost turret for small or medium sized lathes.
The turret has 4 slots for your cutting tools, a center locking handle and a spring and ball for your ratcheting positions. The base of the toolpost has a round boss to locate the turret onto your base, and 4 teardrop shaped grooves for the locator ball. The ball is spring loaded so that the turret rotates in one direction freely and in the opposite direction the ball locks in four 90 degree positions.
You will need to build a base so the turret is on center height to your spindle, bore a hole to fit the center boss, drill and tap your base for the handle and then drill a hole to accept the spring and ball. A great addition to any lathe if you want to have a backside toolpost for more operations. Comes with a nice bright chrome locking handle for a nice professional appearance.
