Nice work. The alloy tool holders will wear well and don't need to be made from steel as everybody seems to think. I made a QCTP entirely from aluminium alloy, (i.e:-body and tool holders), about a year ago and there is no wear evident whatsoever with regular use. Here's the YouTube link if you'd like to have a look at it - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lPjY1JcQ1U
