    Default lathe 101 question about tool post

    i am embarrassed to ask this, but every lathe I have bought has come with a tool post. I just bought a lathe that doesn't. So I bought a tool post from CDCO (which will be fine for my needs) and the mount is a solid piece of steel. Am i supposed to maching it (which is no problem) to the correct dimensions for my T slot?

    Thanks
    Chris

    Tim,
    Yup, that’s exactly what you’re supposed to do.

    Regards, John.
