    Lathe Setup?

    I see alot of people with their lathe tool holder set at about 45deg to the work is there a reason for this or is it just preference?

    We put ours at 30 deg. because we find that it to be out of the way for most turning applications and also is ready for doing a 60 deg standard thread when we need it, and not having to bother with adjusting our quick change tool post.
