Sorby is definitely 12 x 1.25 I had to tap a thread recently for my router table that mounts in the banjo. This is a finer thread than normal for 12mm.

A friend has both types and he says they are not compatible.

I’m lead to believe the thread size on the Robert Sorby is 12mm x 1.25 metric fine. No idea of the Axminster thread but I could find out if needed.

Anyone know if the Sorby and Axminster toolposts have the same thread size, and what the thread size/s is/are.

Thanks

Bought at the Harrogate show in 2018. I've really enjoyed this lathe since I retired but have now bought something with a bit more capacity. It's very clean and comes with bench feet and the outrigger arm.I made a bench which is a bit rough but you're welcome to it.
I'm in Stoke on Trent and looking for £500 ONO

Not sure if my photos have loaded.....might have to have another go.

A 3" layer of shavings in the bottom of a newly emptied wheely bin will soak up liquids which escape from the trash to follow and then fall out with the next emptying, keeping the bin itself clean, if a little dusty.

It's all in the lighting

Yes, I think the first photo had a strange colour cast to it?
