    If you get divorced at least you will have a Levin lathe and cross slide to snuggle with at night. The quick change tool in the picture is too large for your cross slide. The one you want measures 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 and is a smaller version than the one in the picture. Also, you do not need an anodized finish. The plain aluminum finish works just as well and costs less. Don’t worry about the mounting kit. You will probably have to make your own T-NUT to fit your cross slide anyway.


    I received a quick response from the people at A2Z and, based upon your recommendation, they came back with the Silver Quick model. They did say that since it comes with the mounting kit, I might as well tell them what lathe I have so they can set it up that way.


    Thanks for the help!
