The question has come up more than once as to whether or not Logan ever actually supplied a taper attachment that was an add-on to the existing cross slide and that attached in place of the chip guard as opposed to the replacement one-piece cross slide with provision for attaching to a taper attachment. The short answer appears to be "no". A recent thread included a MrPete video of him making such an add-on part but I can't find any evidence of Logan ever having offered something similar. Every catalog reference to taper attachments includes a statement something like "becomes a permanent part of the lathe", which refers to the modified cross slide.
