    Default what kind of turret is on this old Stand-Modern lathe?

    Can someone tell me what kind of turret is on this old Stand-Modern lathe? I need to buy a boring bar tool holder for it but do not know what type of turret this is and can not pick out a compatible tool holder. It is 9.75 in. in diameter. It is circular and does NOT have flats on the circumference. Id and pics below.

    In your case you need to turn a OD12" stock with an ID9.75" bore then finish the holders on a rotary to accommodate for the bolts (coolant and keyway patterns in a vise).
    Once you got all that debured and bolted on the turret, you then proceed to boring & reaming the 8 holders individually "on the actual lathe they go on" (drill, bore, reamer tools chucked).
    Only then you can source tooling for boring, etc...

    Cheapest/safest/fastest way around your issue I'm afraid. One full day work
