I guess with taper bearings you won't need a thrust bearing? I've wanted to build an interchangeable tip center for years but I'm watching to get my build right in my mind. I've picked up some bearings through the years also , my current lathe will likely be my only one ever. 11" Logan it's been used by me quite alot over the forty plus years I've owned it. Always wanted a more stout lathe in a 14-16" range ,,,, Monarch ,,, being my favorite ,, but beggars can't be choosers . Nice build I'm watching to see the completion .
