Evening all, I have a Fortis lathe which recently purchased. I would ideally like another tool holder and a parting off tool. Can anyone advise me what would fit this as there seem to be a lot of different ones out there, unless I’m just showing my newbie greenness!

thanks Mark

Thank you all for the welcome. Mike I am not too sure yet, general experience first I thin but my other half has a market stall in Par which she keeps asking me to make things for, mainly model motorcycles and the likes.

I’ve also been asked for model railway components from a neighbour but not sure what he wants exactly.

‘Tis definitely proper Bill & I’ll get there Dreckly I’m sure.

It’s handy to know others have a Fortis too Bazyle, hopefully I’ll be able to get some useful tips along the way.

cheers n gone now

Good evening all, my name is Mark and I have recently purchased a Fortis lathe. I have been in the motor trade for years and always wanted a lathe. Fate had it that I bought a Fortis lathe from Devon & found out afterwards it was built in Truro.

I’m sure I will be asking advise when I get into it and have purchased a manual off the site already.
