    My generic 14 x 40 has a round vertical spigot standing up from the crossslide. Don't remember its diameter but its quite anemic considering the size of the lathe

    The Myford Super 7 also has a dovetail spigot similar to the one on a S/B 9" lathe. The vertical slide fits into this same hole on the cross slide. A very secure system IMO.

    I think it probably falls under the idea "something resembling a spigot".

    Thank goodness we do not have to make up a completely new word for every thing we make.

    Earlier Sheldons too, not sure if all models though...Atlas...on the Sheldon I have the spigot is actually on a slightly raised section

    Do the spigots all go the same direction? I mean you have the hole it fits into and the spigot but are they all the same, spigot pointing up from bottom part or are some spigot pointing down from top part?

    I have no idea why it's called a spigot.

    My Southbend has a circular dovetail which is held in place by 2 brass faced set screws . No water involved coming out of spigot?

    I have a spigot on my kitchen and bathroom sink. Why do you have one on your lathe?

    10" Sheldon E models do. At least from 1951 on. Can't remember, I think it's either 1.250" or 1.500"

    I don't claim to be an expert about all Logans, but my 10" 1943 850 doesn't use a spigot not does my Logan 200 model. Remembering looking through parts catalogs for various Logan models there were two different types of compound mountings but neither had a spigot as I recall.

    I just bought a small angle plate with a built in spigot. Thought it would work out well with my Atlas.
    Oh no! same height, same angle,but slightly larger diameter.
    I know Southbend used spigots and I think Logans did. Who else used that system?
Working...
