I recently bought some things off of craigslist from a very old machinist selling some of his stuff, who was too old to use them anymore. Some of things i got with the lot are of no use to me, and i could really use the money instead. Is anybody interested in a V- block with 2 clamps,, a tool post, a layout/setup gauge, an MT-3 dead center, or a super square with faceplates? All of them are very high quality and made in the USA, according to the machinist. Most have no markings as far as i can see.

Pictures or an idea of the size would help, there are too many types of tool posts, I want one, but
is this a lantern type and what size?

I’ll upload some pictures ASAP. I’m not familiar with the specifics of these parts though.

Thank you for the pictures, that is a lantern tool post holder, but it looks like someone cut the bottom
of it off. I do not know how you could fasten it to the lathe.

Really? I’ll post some more pictures of the bottom so you can be sure.

It is a boring bar. It slides to allow you to keep your tool rigid, thus only sticking as much out as you need. Is there a threaded hole on the bottom to go into a T nut?
