Looking at getting one of these for my new WM 250v lathe ,I’m thinking at least it’s in the UK as any gear from China like create make might be a problem getting .anyone got anything to say about the chronos offering ? Good or bad

They have not been doing the multifix type for very long so you may not find many people that have tried them. Would be interesting to know how they compare to create's offerings which get a good report and also how the holders fit original toolposts.

I recently had a rush of blood to my head and treated my Boxford to a Chronos Multifix set. So far I'm happy with it. The quality and repeatability seem OK. I've still got my Boxford 4-way toolpost though, it might come in useful for the heaviest work, as would my GHT type rear toolpost.

The photos on Chronos's web site show a tool system that may well be sourced from Create Tool. It would be nicer if they stocked more than one type of individual toolholder and also if they used the standard Multifix part numbers, the same as everyone else do (so you know that a 150-300mm swing is really a type A, etc)
