    evening all,

    I acquired a Dickson toolpost for my Harrison a few weeks back, but only getting around to even looking at it now.
    I’m wondering if someone could identify the model for me from the pics, I’ve had a search online and I reckon it’s a T2, but just looking to see if anyone could confirm! It came with 3 homemade holders, but none of the adjusting screws to set the height and lock it on the cam. Would anyone have a link to where these can be purchased? The tool holders are tapped for M8 threads.
    Even some dimensions of these would be a great help as i could machine my own.
    Photos attached below.
    Thanks for all the help in advance,
    Brian.

    adjusters can be made quite easily, match the lower collar to the cam slot, diameter to clear when the cam is released. M8 grub screws in the holder to screw the adjuster on and one to lock off.

    Cheers Richard, I actually made one quickly yesterday to the same idea as that, but the mating between the post and holder is very poor.
    I may need to just purchase a proper one and measure against the homemade ones I have as I think there may be something not quite right with my holders.
