One of the best accessories you can add to your lathe is a Quick Change Tool Post. While the immediate benefits come from the convenience and time savings in switching between cutting tools, the most significant benefit is the precise control and reproducibility of the tool height. Each cutting tool has its own dedicated holder and height setting and can be swapped in or out of the tool holder in seconds. Since the tool height has already been set in advance, you don't waste time setting this up, and because the tool is at exactly the right height, the quality of your work is improved.

If you already own a lathe, you know that tool height can be critical - even a few thousandths too high or too low can ruin a facing job, since a little nub will be left at the center of the workpiece.

The other great advantage of a QCTP, of course, is simply speed and convenience; time that would otherwise be spent changing tools and adjusting their heights is instead spent on productive machining. If you don't already own a lathe, you may not know that, lacking an adjustable height toolholder, you must fool around placing thin metal shims under the tool until it is at the right height. This can be a time consuming and frustrating exercise. If you spend more than an hour or two a month using your lathe, you will find the convenience of a QCTP well worth the investment.

The Quick Change Tool Post for Taig is a high-quality, made in USA, accessory that will enhance and expedite your mini-lathe work. If you're in the market for a QCTP for your mini-lathe, this is definitely one that you should consider. If you're not in the market for one, you're probably just getting started, and you'll be wanting one before long. This would definitely be high on the list of must-have accessories.
