    Default WTB: multifix E tool post and/or holders

    I'm interested in setting up my new (to me) 10EE with a Multifix E tool post. Does anyone have a used tool post or tool holders they'd sell for a reasonable price? I may end up getting new from Create Tool (China), but Create Tool (the company) is hard to get a hold of right now...

    Thanks,
    Josh

    Wrong plan. The E size is very scarce and not common, therefore read expensive. I suggest size A is what you need and they are much more common and more than adequate.

    Thanks guys. I thought A was smaller than E and I thought the consensus was that A was a bit too small for a 10EE. I'd love for an A to work, but don't want to set myself up to be dissatisfied...

    I've got one that I think is an "E". Also, I'm not greedy. If you're interested, email me, and we'll be sure that it is the correct size. Rich [email protected]

    Sorry you are right E is slightly larger, senior moment, B is bigger. I have an E on my Monarch no problem. There is an Ebay seller that sells a lot of them, good guy, but shipping from China is pricey.

    I've now got an E size Multifix tool post on the way from "group 5" per above (thanks, Rich!). I still need E tool holders. Any chance anyone has any they'd sell? I'm only interested in European or Chinese ones made by Create Tool. It doesn't sound like any of the other Chinese ones (including some sold in Europe but made in China) are up to snuff...

    I would not put Create above AXA or Pewe. If you are mixing and matching, Pewe holders fit fit the original Minder, later Mivesa, Multiswisse, and Multiquick. Dave

    Thanks, Dave. Since my last post above, I've been doing research and see that PeWe gets good reviews, too.

    I'm still on the market for a size E tool post or holders. It turns out the tool post I bought from group 5 is a size B...

    I kinda have a collection of Multifix size B and might be interested. PM me if you want to sell and how much you are asking. Thanks!
