    You'll have to be more specific.

    I have a 9 inch lathe with the lantern tool post. The tool holders fit in the post and sit on a crescent shaped wedge so you can adjust the angle of the cutting tool. I lost that wedge.

    Get an old disc brake rotor. One with no vents in the middle. You can slice an arc off one and there is your crescent shaped wedge. You can make a dozen in about 10 minutes with a portaband or sawzall. Any auto garage has a bunch laying around for scrap. If you have any barstock laying about same thing. Cut a chunk off and you are good to go.

    I bought a new one not too long ago from MSC. I think they're still available.

    Looks like you can't buy just the rocker..but you can buy a whole rocker tool post

    If I remember correctly the radius of that thing is 3" ie it can be cut off of a 6" disc.The originals are forged steel and very strong.Determined by trial and error with an armstrong washer.
