Lathe Centering & Height Setting Tool
Made in the USA
This is a very helpful item to have when you change tools on your
lathe. This unit makes setting the height of any tool on on any lathe
quick and easy.
Simply hold the V shaped mouth around your material and set the
touch-off edge on top of your cutter. Raise or lower your tool holder
until the bubble level lines up. Your cutter will be set on center.
No need to remove the part you are turning. When you need to change
cutting tools mid-job, this tool is your friend.
This tool is an improved version of a unit that we had been selling to
very positive reviews. So why did we change it? We use these tools in
our own shop and found that a couple of features would make this simple
tool nearly perfect.
It can be a tight area to fit your hand between your chuck and your
tool post while holding onto any kind of setting tool. Sometimes your
hands or your tool can be oily and slippery. One needs to hold
the tool firmly perpendicular to your material to get a good reading.
The contours and radii were added to make holding the tool easier from
any angle. The center hole allows you to even operate it with just one
finger or your thumb.
We have also added a powerful magnet to the touch off surface. After
dropping ours from time to time we decided that a magnet here was
called for. It isn't powerful enough to allow for completely hands-free
operation, but it will allow you to take your hands off of the tool without
watching your tool fall down between your ways.
This is a great little tool that will save you time and eliminate guessing and
