iIf you are using a diehead can you tell me how the dies should be fitted The dies are all numbered so they must go in  the proper order , Do you fit them going clockwise or anti clockwise  in the diehead 
Thread: Taper cutting
04/07/2009 21:22:54
 I dont know what size of lathe you are using  ,but one of my lathes is a  Harrision 300 and to m/c a morse taper 4 I would set the compound slide to the correct angle . In my opinion you should  not ofset the tailstock by the amount needed to m/c this taper ,the tailstock should only be used for very slow tapers . When you ofset the tailstock by this amount the tailstoct centre and the headstock centre do not locate properly in the cenre hole in the workpiece hence your problem with chatter . If you project aline through the headstock and another through the ofset tailstock  and then draw a line through the centre line of the workpiece you should see what I mean .  I hope this makes sense  if not come back  and and I will try again .
