    Quick Change Tool Post Angular Stop

    I own a Phase II Quick Change Tool Post. It is a great attachment for my lathe. When I change tool holders, the preset cutter height is just as I left it. Unfortunately, the angle of the cutter with respect to the lathe’s center of rotation must often be set. It is easy to loosen the center bolt for this adjustment but it does take a little fiddling. The angular stop presented here reduces this fiddling.

    I made this for my quick change tool post.



    But within an hour I hated the shoulder bolt and made this from stainless and brass.
