    Attached is my set up for a B&S#9
    Great idea that boring head Probably want to make sure it's installed parallel with the ways in a horizontal plane as it could throw things off if it's on an angle ? Or does that make a difference Jim B ??

    It would sure make a difference on your cutting tool height staying on center.

    Sort of what I was thinking but wanted a second opinion.

    Nope. You need to find a MT5 to MT3 adapter sleeve and a MT3 center if you don't already have one.

    Re: taper turning between centers

    There are special center drills made for taper turning. They drill a hole shaped like the bell of a bugle instead of just a straight sides 60º hole. That way,the entire hole has contact with the center hole,and not just 2 places of contact,which is what you get with a regular center drill used in a tapered turning operation.

    I can't recall if these center drills have a special name or not. You can tell them by just looking at them. You'll see their concave cutting edges.
