Well Cal, I'm sort of embarrassed to say that the only project I had in mind requiring a taper attachment was to make a black powder cannon someday!
Thanks for the link to the article.
Every place I have worked had at least one machine with a taper attachment. Probably one of the least used pieces of equipment we had. But in a business, when you needed it you really needed it.Thanks Bob, and Cal,
I will probably ponder that last sentence for a while prior to continuing on this venture.
ME TOO !!!! And if I had the kind of money to buy a nice 10EE, I wouldn't have a problem with paying $500 for a steady rest....But then again, if I had a 10EE, I would want every bell and whistle available.
