But BG has treated many members here well. As for your blocks, if you have a number such as 250-101 for example, they will fit any qctp of that size. You never said whether it was AXA, BXA or CXA. Mine are CXA.
That is the great thing about the qctp post is the standardization.

As far as the mini lathe posts I have no idea if they are standardized.
The post for my mini lathe is an OXA and the parts do seem to be standard.

Shars is another seller of these components. Their prices are reasonable. They put me in mind of the old Enco company.

I purchased all my extra holders off eBay from Shars and they were less in the cost going through eBay than the shars site for whatever reason and I have been very happy with them also bought a few other odds and ends from them as well all have been a pleasure for price and quality...

My QCTP I did get from CDCO VIA eBay as well seems they give better deal VIA eBay over their own site...

I haven't heard much about Banggood other than the horror stories posted on this board and referenced earlier in this thread.

For the record, if it weren't for Chinese and Taiwanese products, my shop would have little more than a hundred year old 12-36 change gear lathe, a clapped out WWII era 16-48 Hiebert lathe, and a half century old stick welder. I am also convinced that the kit I bought was imported from either China or Taiwan.

AXA would be the 250-100 series
BXA would be the 250-200 series
The blocks are not interchangeable

you should post a picture of that old lathe. It is probably the oldest lathe still in use by our group. I think it is unique.

I'll have to move a bunch of "inventory" from around it to get any decent pictures of it. Maybe next rainy day? We're having lots of those lately, so it may not be long....

I'll also try to use my little point n shoot Nikon rather than the Apple platform stuff so no one has to stand on their head to view the pictures.p

Definitely the BXA. Blocks are the 200 series. Oddly, the flyer also has the axa set on for the same price.

Too busy designing the moat for the shop, also searching the sites for a good fire breathing dragon, to build a fort, that comes in phase 4 of the plans.
