  • L-00 Spindle Taper

    I have seen the L-00 spindle taper given as 8 deg, 17 min, 50 sec. This is the half angle.

    I have also seen it given as 7:24 which is 3 1/2 inch per foot. This half angle is 8 deg, 7 min, 48 sec.

    Which is correct or is either one close enough?

    My Pratt Burnerd catalogue says the American Standard Long Taper Key Drive type L spindle nose; L00, L0, L1, L2, L3 spindle are all 8*17'50".

    Might find it in Machinery's Handbook too, but, as usual, it isn't listed under anything sensible like "standard spindle", "spindle", "lathe", "chuck" etc.

      Thanks for responding, but that is precisely my question. I have seen reputable sources list it both ways.

        Peter,

        Since you were the only one to respond to my posting, this answer is for you.
        I hope I didn't add any confusion to any one. But I was all wet with my original question. 8* 17' 50" half angle corresponds exactly with 7/24 included angle taper for the L-00 spindle. What I did wrong was not use the half-angle when I figured the tangents. I should have known better and am red-faced.
