  • Tailstock turret info

    I'm looking for a tailstock turret with a #2MT... I've heard that Enco sells them. I've search the site and can't find one.
    Does anyone have the number or a link to the page.

    Thanks Tim

      Thanks Forrest... I've been looking thru ebay for some time and most I've seen either have a rusted or banged up MT... and still sell for more then I'm willing to pay or as I see could buy for new.

      Agian thank you and Happy Holidays... Tim

          Al I've thought about it. Do you have any photos... did you use someones plan or just put it together on the fly?

          Thanks Tim

            Tim, I used the plan on page 59 of L. H. Sparey's book "The Amateur's Lathe", published by Argus Books and available from Wise Owl Books.

                I only have one MT3 live center and one MT3 mounted chuck. I do have MT2 to MT3 sleeves for the things from my 7 x 10 lathe. But the are almost a dublication of what I have on my 13 x 40 lathe.

                I would like a turret, but not sure if it would useful.

                I like the Grizzly price on their MT3 turret. $69.95

                  AL... What size is it that you made.. any pic's of it? I'd like to see it. Cause this might be the way to go for me. The turret is just the first part in a project I'd like to make.

                    I would like to see pictures and plans also. It could be a decent little project for me to work on.

                    I may just buy one of those live center kits with teh different noses. If there are no simple or even medium complex turret plans.

                      Ok I found Wise Owl Books.. but I can't find away to search the site for the book. I did find a place that had it in the UK but there has to be a outlet for it in the US. Checked ebay no luck there. So Wise Owl Books.. do I just have to call them or can a order be placed online?

                            I would be glad to send a photo, BUT, my Scanned is busted! However, I did make it with the No. 2 Morse taper and drilled it to take tools with a .375" shank. You could easily make bigger holes and bush down the shanks of smaller tools.
