If you are going with an import QC Post, take a good look at the Phase II.What are you guys thinking for a tool post? What supply shop have you had good luck with? I am out of the loop, but I have purchased from Shars before, but again its been a while. I found a wedge post with a few holders on Ebay new, but have seen mixed reviews. It has a lantern post on it now, which is alright but will be going a different direction for boring. Pardon my off and on absence with AS, I will be spending some minutes, hours, days, possibly weeks on practical machinist, excellent site!
