Quick change lathe tool post No. (Equivalent to the Aloris AXA, the industry standardized size). (Interchangeable with AXA tool post toolholders).
Post is very clean & has seen little use. Factory original with no modifications. No owner etchings or markings, ever. Handle is straight & ball is complete without damage.Everything adjusts easily & properly. Custom base T-slot is included (2.175"long x 1.135" wide).
Base T-slot may require modification to fit buyers lathe. Many tools in industry have proprietary sizes. Sandvik is a notorious example of proprietary sizing. Tool post sizes are a wonderful example of industry standardization.
I recently learned Hardinge was the original 5C designer & patent holder. When patents run out (typically 14-20 years) standardizing becomes possible. Standardization typically makes things easier. However, proprietarization often necessitates innovation.Staying the course or forging a new path. Just some thoughts on the subject. Thanks for reading & best wishes to all. Take a moment & see my other items. Thank you for viewing this listing.
