This is an adjustable height 4-way toolpost for use on a Your Lathe. You can have up to four different toolbits mounted ready for use. The bottom adjusting ring base raises and lowers the toolpost head with 0.025" per revolution precision.

This toolpost can be made to use 1/8" to 1/4" or 6mm conventional toolbits, or square gravers. A hex wrench for the clamping screws is included.

I can make the adjusting base to your dimensions. I would need the following dimensions:

1. Top of slide to center of lathe spindle or tailstock.
2. Width of T-slot top.
3. Width of T-slot bottom.
4. Depth of T-slot.
5. Height of T-slot bottom, or thickness of T-slot top.
6. Size of toolbit desired for use.

With these dimensions, I can make it fit.

Here is a review by Nick Carter of Carter Tools for my Taig lathe version:
This is new manufacture... made of steel, the old fashioned way, by manual machining... made in the USA.
