        Very nice. Are the black parts aluminum or blackened steel?

          I really appreciate your posting this project! I have a 17" LeBlond that was missing the same taper parts you have made when I bought it. This gives me the push to get to work before spring sets in and things get going...

            Before I make any cuts with this, I need to dig up my list of things that need a taper, and make some blanks. But, it seems to work when I try it. I'll post again when I've made some parts

            Sid: All the parts are made from steel. I painted them with semi-gloss black.

              For those of us who have never seen one, can you take a shot that shows how it works, please?

                Tim, is your lathe equipped with a quick-disconnect for the cross slide, or do you have to dismantle something to use the taper attachment?

                  I'll try to post when I cut some tapers.

                    Yes, the cross feed nut is connected by a system that clamps the nut to the cross slide. After removing the bolt, the slide floats, allowing the taper attachment to feed the tool, rather than the feed screw.

                      Nicely done Tim. Taper attachments are hard to get right as far as the scales go. Let us know how it works.
