    Another Diamond Toolholder Adapter

    On my lathe, my Diamond Toolholder must be set at about 12 degrees in order to face and turn stock. However, the rest of my tools require zero degrees. All of my lathe tools are held in my Quick Change Tool Post. Having to constantly loosen the bolt and move between these two angles does diminish the "Quick". In the latest copy of Machinistís Workshop is an article by R.F. Pierce which solves this problem.

    Here is my version of his solution.
