(tools not included, shown for reference only)
The front side, multi-tool holder was designed to complement our four position, gang-tooling tool posts (P/N 5930 or P/N 5935). It can be used in conjunction with the gang-tooling tool post, or on its own for our customers who want to convert their Sherline lathe into a “Chucker Lathe” or gang-tooling lathe.
Our front side, multi-tool holder offers a convenient and accurate way to hold up to two, round boring tools, and a slot for holding turning, grooving or threading tools. This tool post has (2) 3/8″ holes to hold boring bars, drill chucks, or tool bushings, and a slot to hold a 3/8″ lathe cutting tool with two locking screws for each tool.
For customers who want to use ER16 collet holders with a 5/8″ shank, we offer P/N 5937 which is the same as this tool holder except it has 5/8″ tooling holes.

Considerations Regarding this Tool Post and Its Possible End Uses
There are many considerations regarding this tool post and its possible end uses. Please check the instructions for a complete list (click on the Instructions below to download the document). This tool post is designed to be used with our 13″ Mill Table (P/N 50180 or P/N 67050) in place of the crosslide. Other recommended optional equipment includes P/N 1294 Riser Plate in order for your tools to be on centerline with the headstock spindle.
While the gang-tooling tool post will mount on the the 6″ and 8″ crosslides, its size renders it unusable on either of these crosslides.
