    Cant beat an Aloris system. I have 8 holders and rarely have to break one down. I took a lathe down my basement 25 yrs ago and still glad I did.

    Cdco has cheap tool holder. The set screws need to be replaced.
    They are in the $12.00 range.

    if you pick up an Aloris tool holder it is massive, dense solid. i am sure they for it for a reason.
    the ability to HOLD a tool well.
    imho, the amazon tool holder is heavier, denser, more solid than the cdc. for the small difference in price, it is well worth it. less harmonics.

    Will a tuner take the harmonics out of your toolpost?

    I was speaking of the tool holders. I use Aloris wedge type and I have about 10 Aloris holders and the rest are cheapies.

    Jackie, Is that a Covid-19 or the new Covid-20 tool in the tool holder? Tim

    yes i think the heavier densier tool holder is a more solid hold...so yes less harmonics.
