I had not checked the tailstock on my '63 SB Heavy 10L since I got it in November. It had been in storage for 10 years prior and served as "the good lathe" in an old line manual shop before that. I set-up the Last Word on the jointed round mount that came with it and put that in a 3/8 collet in the spindle. Brought the tailstock up, zeroed the dial inside the taper and spun the spindle. It registered .003 tir vertical, .000 horizontal. Put away the indicator and called it a day. Should buy some lottery tickets.
