Title: A few useful items for sale
Post by: propforward on June 10, 2021, 11:21:08 PM
I've seen other long standing members sell a few things here and there - so in the spirit of wanting to pass these on to a forum member at a significantly lower price than I will try and get on ebay, I am offering them here. Please PM me if interested in any of these. They are simply surplus items because I have obtained other tooling that works better for me.

Myford style quick change tool post - used. Asking $50 plus shipping.

A mix of quite old post and holders, and a few newer ones. All works well, has seen some use - I got these second hand myself. 3 boring bar type holders, 7 standard holders, 2 parting blade holders.

Shoot me a PM if interested. I won't bump the thread, if there's no interest I'll just put them on fleabay, or try and find a local home.

They are heavy, so you should probably consider shipping to be around the 50 to 60 dollar mark for the heavy items. The mighty mounts are likely around $15. If interested in any of these, let me know and I can work out an accurate shipping cost.


Not against shipping internationally - but based on what I have experienced over the past year (3 wooly hats to my nephews cost me $60 to ship) I'd say there isn't likely much point going that route.
Cheers, hope I can help someone on the forum out.

Oh yes - paypal is good but you pay the fees, but will accept good old fashioned mailed checks if you like. I'm not in a big hurry, but would like to put the funds towards some other tooling that will be more useful to me. Like a lathe DRO.  ;D

Very good. I will measure the hole diameter in the am. I have not modified the toolpost, all I did was make a custom T nut, bolt and locking handle. Not the best of items but they worked, and you are welcome to those as well. More info in the morning.

PM incoming.

In case that doesn't work out, and for anyone wondering, the ID of the toolpost is 0.442", verified with a minus gauge pin.
