    Default Quick change tool post for SB 16"?

    I have a late 40's South Bend 16" lathe, and would like to pick up a quick change tool post...I've read that some people have used the BXA size, but others suggest the CXA. For those with SB 16" lathes, what size do you suggest?

    I have a BXA on my 14.5"
    Not certain if it would cause problems raising up another 3/4" .
    I'll check tomorrow.

    I have a CXA on mine, it's the right size for a S B 16.

    I have a AXA on a 14" lathe and it works fine. AXA tooling is way cheaper and I can also use it on my smaller lathe. I have never investigated t0 see if I could make one work on my 18" lathe.
