I tried finding a tailstock for a Troyke 15" rotary table. They seem rare and tres expensive ($750 for one). Can a lathe tailstock be bolted to a custom platform and used for the rotary table?

I use the tailstock off my lathe with my 10" rotary table all the time, but I had to machine a custom platform for it to get it to the right hight.
