First of all "thank you" to Torch whose post on this subject finally got me to do this. I wish I'd done it ten years ago!

First I bought the CDCO BXA QCTP off of ebay.

When it got here I noticed that the base was an exact fit on top of the mobile jaw on the compound and it also put the post at a correct height for all of the attachments. To me it seemed the easiest way to attach the post to the jaw was to drill and countersink four holes in the base, then drill and tap the mobile jaw, and finally attach the base to the jaw with four 5/16-24 cap screws.

I realize the bit is cocked in the one picture I just threw it in there when I mocked everything up.

I bought that set and it appears to be well made. We will have to get some shorter set screws :wink: The threads fit are good too.
