I recently purchased a "new" lathe. It is a 1943 vintage Monarch 16" CW toolroom lathe and it came with an excellent selection of tooling. One thing that was missing though was a center for the headstock. I purchased a new manual from Monarch, but it did not contain any of the dimensional data for my lathe. Can anyone out there tell me what the size/type of center to use in this headstock? I am hoping it is something like a #5 or #7 Morse taper, but I'm only guessing. Any help is greatly appreciated.
