Okay, here's a couple of pics of a little project I did a while back. I recently cleaned up the surfaces on my "new to me" bandsaw. Hopefully the peanut gallery will approve For anyone unfamiliar, you can use an item such as this to turn tapers between centers. It prevents having to set over the tailstock itself and whatever angst reseting it may bring. I did cheat on this by using premade mt-3/4 arbors I had laying around. I cut a ball center on the mt-4 arbor to be used on the headstock, I still need to change the other end to a ball center though. The bubble level helps get it set up the same each time--I've never seen it move once the taper was set into the tailstock, but I take pretty light cuts with it anyway. This has been nice for making mt tooling and I really enjoyed making it. I realize I could probably use my boring head to accoplish the same results, but it was just more fun this way! Sidegrinder.
