number 1 tapers if you mean them are available from arceuro .ebay ..anywhere

bit harder to get a 0 one

hmm..............

maybe he said ..get me a zero one ...or a naught one....meaning he wanted a MT0

The 01 designation throws me off. But if it is a MT 0 your looking for. I seem to recall that's what the Sherline lathes use.

Ive seem #o M/T in tool catalogs,, i think just a couple, and yes i think sherline and maybe Taig use them also.

The old Dunlap built lathes (metal and wood), i think also used those tapers.

They're pretty small, think the large end is right around 1/4 inch.

KBC tools carries the morse taper drill sockets in #1 also reducing sleeves, so they must be available somewere around your'e country.

Sherline doesn't use a real MT0, they use a cut-off version with the same taper, but much shorter. it will fit, but for instance, will not eject from a tailstock.

I actually have a single MT0 center left over from an old machine..... sold two others with the machine. No idea where you'd get one, they are not at all common. The mate to it I had to drill out from the spindle, it was wedged in tight.

I do have an MT0 reamer though.

MT1 is pretty common comparatively. lots of small MT drills use that taper, up to 15/32 or so (11.9 mm).

While MT1 centers are not quite as common as drills, I do see them on lists of available tapers. I think small 6" (3" to you, Alistair) Atlas lathes use that in the tailstock.

You're lucky :) for being in the UK on this one. If your friend is in need of true 0 Morse tooling, Cowells Machine (http://www.cowells.com/) has all sorts of items (http://www.cowells.com/acc_90e.htm). Their 90ME lathe has a tailstock taper of 0 Morse.

:confused: ...making a very quality machine entirely in the UK that is precise, accurate and guaranteed to be so? Those "collets" are Schaublin B8. Nothing to skoff at. In comparison to similar watchmakers' equipment, I consider them rather affordable. I don't have much to say, though, about the mill. I've always been more impressed with the lathes.
