New type QCTP
« on: August 18, 2023, 10:14:52 AM »
Just ran into this video this morning about a new style QCTP from Dorian. Here's the video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hblxaVgyTJE
According to the video, they've been out for a while, but supply chain shortages is still impacting availability.
I haven't looked into the cost, available sizes, or current availability yet, just thought I'd toss it out here for awareness.

They are nice.  Better be sitting down when you hear the price on them.  Just the post alone is north of a grand for a BXA size post.  They are mostly made in USA just up the road from me.

Hey, you must remember, folks down here shoot first, ask questions later. Bury you next.  Go back to work like nothing ever happen.

The Dorian shop is out in the middle of a farm field the last time I looked.

Looks nice. Maybe an advantage is the indexing? Yes, my Aloris canít index. But I do have tool holders that are angled so I can leave the post alone and use an angled tool holder. On a blue moon I have also had to angle the tool post. You canít have everything, or can you?
