Hi thinking of getting a Myford 254s what size shank of tool could I expect to get into a quick change toolpost. Also anybody any idea on what budget I should be looking at.

Probably depends on which type of QCTP you go for as some will allow larger than others

The genuine Dickson QCTP on mine takes 12mm tools

Mine has a QCTP that I am pretty sure came with the machine, new from Myford. The slot in the standard holders measures 0.555” or thereabouts.
I use tipped tools almost exclusively, and for use on my 254, I have machined a number of them down to fit the QCTP.

I use 10mm and 12mm tools on mine with the original Myford quick change tool post.
