Subject:
size of toolpost for Delta Midi?

>Hi everyone,

Sorry I haven't been around much. I've had lots to do and very little time to get it done.

Anyone know off hand what the diameter of the tool post for the Delta Midi lathe is? I recently acquired a used (but in excellent shape) Bestwoods Modular toolrest system. I got the 1" dia post for my Jet Lathe, and the gent I bought it from threw in the tool post for a mini lathe. When I got it home I found that it was too big to fit in the tool rest. So I'm having a friend with a metal lathe mill it down to size. I just need to tell him the diameter.

See ya around,

Dominic
