    I recently made 2 Tangental tool holder, welded construction. One of the things I'd like to stress is the use of peening, (in this case with an air hammer) this prevents shrinkage on cooling and allows very precise welded fabrication!

    ^^^^^ as Ali said. :thumbup:

    If anyone didn't understand the reason for peening, it's very well explained here both in words and actions.

    Thanks for under-lining the reason for peening, it can make a huge difference!

    I made a couple of these, mine aren't for a qctp. Best tools I've ever used on a lathe. They are superb.
