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.

Mine is an add-on to the cross slide, it's a milled and ground steel flat that is profiled to bolt on to the cross slide after the way cover is unbolted.

If you look at the Logan manual you will find a Logan taper attachment listed. My 1947 820 has an original taper cross slide. It is one piece. I don't have the taper attachment itself but I intend to build one. Tubelcain has a later video where someone sent him an original cross slide and he compares it to the one he made.

It appears that all of the Logan original taper attachments, unlike most other badges, use the lengthened one piece cross slide instead of replacing the chip guard with an extension.
