One of George Thomas' simplest and most elegant designs, the Rear Tool Post, with its indexing turret, has become a vital addition to all Myford lathes for the past 30 years. And now, Hemingway is pleased to announce a new version, based on the work of both G H Thomas and E Riley.
Suitable for lathes with up to 3 ½" between the cross slide and centre, the kit includes the main casting and all material to complete a substantial Rear Tool Post for your Boxford, South Bend, Atlas, Chester, Harrison, Myford 254, Colchester, Warco, Grizzly. plus many more. The Rear Tool Post is designed to engage with either a single T slot or a pair of tapped holes towards the rear of your cross slide. The turret is designed to accept a parting blade and an additional inverted tool up to ½" square.
