I have been using a Dickson quick change on my Myford for a long time but buying additional tool holders for it in my neck of the woods is beyond my budget, so I decided to change for one of the B2132 type from Busy Bee in Alberta the additional tool holders are only $27 which I can afford. The B2132 is designed for a 12 inch lathe. with a small modification to the compound slide however it works fine.
All I had to do was mill a step into the end and back sides of the compound slide. the one on the end is .25 x .125
and the one on the side is .125 x .125
I know all the Myford purists are probably gasping, but a tool that can be optimized for little expense seemed like a reasonable compromise.
I pushed out the Myford 7/16 post and tapped the slide 1/2 x 20 and machined the 9/16 end of the B2132 post down to 1/2 inch then threaded it 1/2 x 20 and then drilled and tapped the end with a 1/4 x 28 to put a locking keeper plate on the underside of the casting that was filled originally by the large end of the original Myford post.
I still have the option of setting the Dickson back on the new threaded post, should I be lucky enough to come across a hidden stash of unwanted Dickson holders here in Alberta.
