PLEASE NOTE: These are not bolsters, they are the receivers that the bolsters screw into. The standard 3/4" bolster can be found here
Stuart Batty's Taper lock connection style for his carbon fiber handles is one of the best we've found. It's very quick and simple to change a tool, and it reduces vibration much better than a set screw. While we personally like the carbon fiber handles, we realize many woodturners prefer the feel of a wooden handle. That is why we are offering just the receiver so you can make your own wood handle that is compatible with the quick change SB Taper-Lock System.
Fits a 1" diameter x 2.5" deep hole

I've been waiting for something like this for a while ever since I took a class with Allan Batty and saw his setup. Stuart has taken this to the next level.
I have only 3 tool handles for several tools now. The vibration is GONE ... all I hear is the tool cutting.
No elbow pain or fatigue after 4+ hour stretches at the lathe. Great product!
