Hello to all that know loads more than me (witch is everyone in this damned forum)
I just purchased a voest 17 and its equiped with absolutly no tool holding
Any recommendations on tool posts (size, style where to find quality on a budget)?
I kind of like the euro style mutifix kinda goes with the lathe .
(Pros-cons?)
And the tailstock accutremont ?
Any advice or info would be better than me stabbing at tadpoles in muddy water.

Multifix are very nice but typically "Spendy". Your best buy is probally going to be an Aloris style "Wedge" Lots of used CXA and DXA tooling out there for not a whole lot of $.. The Aloris stuff will generally repeat to within 0.001" / 0.01mm.

These folks are one of the makers of a Multifix clone . I think there may be a review on youtube on them .
