The little machine shop holders are 1" and so too small, and they do not do custom stuff. Good try though!! The post appears to work fine, missing the bolt to install, but I can make one of them w/ no problem. The 1 3/8" Dovetail is what is causing me all of the grief. It is about 78% of the size of the aloris.

Mack, hit it correctly, that is a KDK tool post, and is a proprietary mounting system, and is not the Aloris, Dorian, Phase II and numerous other Chinese clones style of the AXA - DXA type tool post. Some of the catalog sellers sell KDK holders, but, check out the link Mack had originally posted (reposted below) and check all of the sizes.

<edit>Did the ones you bought say either AXA or have a 250-100 or 250-101 or similar numbers on them? Will they take them back? If they won't and are the AXA or 100 series, depending on the number, I may be interested in them, send me a PM, with the details.

I went to the kdk site all they had were 1.75 and 1". Maybe this post is obsolete. Still there must be some toolholders for it somewhere.

If I can't locate the holders for this post I will get one compatible with the holders I have, but thanks for the offer.
