Thread: Help needed north London Enfield

I'll look into the yard length chucks and try and work out the best solution

Im probably missing something but the tailstock spindle is 0.354 ish so wouldn't be able to take a 0MT reamer?

The taper isn't a 0MT it's the small end of a 0MT extended hence needing one made

Would anyone be able to do me a massive favour and turn me a couple of tapers to fit my Super adept lathe obviously I'll supply all parts needed would need the taper on the tail stock done and a threaded side probably a 3/8th also need a dead center done

The drill chuck that I use on my Super Adept is from a Stanley wheel brace, the orrigional shaft has the taper on it, and just at the begining of the thread there is a transverse hole for a tommy bar.

That seems like a much easier solution might have to have a look online for one

Plenty of small keyed drill chucks are available cheaply for around £4 on ebay and usually have a 3/8in UNF thread or a small taper fitting, 3/8in bolts were used on British and US cars prior to Metrication and should not be too difficult to obtain. Presuming your lathe is otherwise in operation, it should not be too difficult to turn the correct taper to fit the tailstock. If you have never done this a trick is to put a solid centre in reverse along the side of the topslide and set so that it brings the centre line in line with the lathe centre line. Otherwise you can use Blue compound the test the fit. It is always a great advantage to have more than one chuck to use so buy at least two. If you can manage to produce the correct taper, make a tapered arbor and drill it 1/8th inch. Fit an 1/8th centre drill with Loctite or Superglue and this means you always have a centre drill at the ready. . T. Oliver.

I'll definitely try and make one if I can don't know if I have the skill to do that yet but I'll give it a try, my big problem is I have nothing for the end stock not even a center
