    Default Tool Post/Turret Options for BP Romi EZ Path Lathe

    Hey all,
    I dont post much but wanted to get opinions on what tool post or turret most people prefer on a machine like a Bridgeport Romi EZ Path lathe?
    I recently picked one up for what I think was a good deal but it has no tool post on it.

    Any other brands of turrets besides Dorian? Anything better than a generic Aloris CXA post without completely breaking the bank?

    All input is appreciated!
    Thanks!

    Anyone else with any input?
    Started thinking about adapting a small turret from a Hardinge chucker machine...(anyone done this before?), or possibly a gang style tooling setup.

    Anyone?

    I have a Romi M17 with an 8 station Sauer Turret. It was on the machine when I purchased it. The Sauer Turret came on the lathe from Romi. Mine is not a Bridgeport but all the info I can find that Bridgeport relabeled the Romi. If there is anything I can send you as information please let me know! I am currently looking for a tail stock for this machine, preferably with an automated quill. The quill doesn't need to have programmable functions but would be nice.

    I had a Dorian electric/air turret on a Milltronics ML20 and didn't like it. On a smaller machine it might be better strength wise, but it was also finnicky to keep the encoder in adjustment.

    Milltonics switched to Pragati turrets, I've heard they were better.
