A single calibrated screw is part of the holder design to provide zero backlash taper adjustment. The holders have an 8-degree rake angle and accept standard 5/8-inch dovetail tooling. Two holder designs are currently available, Model Nos. are 31-21 and 31-22 to accommodate both sides of the spindle.

The Tornos holders are also available for use with special Schlitter pre-formed rectangular inserts that are produced from specially-engineered supercarbide and super high-speed-steel to provide maximum toughness. The holders are available direct from Schlitter or through their distributor network.
