tailstock

the tailstock (see figure 33) is typically used to
support long workpieces by means of a live or
dead center (refer to centers on page 36). it can
also be used to hold a drill or chuck to bore holes
in the center of a part. Custom arbors and tapers
can also be cut on your lathe by using the offset
tailstock adjustment.

installing tooling

this tailstock uses a quill with an Mt#3 taper that
accepts a variety of tapered arbors and tooling,
including tang arbors and drill bits (see figures
34–35 for examples).

note: If the tooling has an open hole in the end,
then a screw can be threaded into the end of the
tool to provide a solid surface for the quill pin to
push against when the quill is retracted for tool
removal. Otherwise, removal of such tooling may
be difficult.
