    I checked them out, and yes lots of similiar stuff, but the Taig website didnt have anything with a large spindle bore.

      He is making or having that part of the machine made. For making pool cues a spindle with that diameter through it, running on regular ball bearings would not be hard to make out of some heavy wall tubing. Taig uses cold roll for there lathe bed, and it would not be hard to get a piece that long and have it ground to fit thier carriage and tail stock. Taig is more than happy to sell any of thier bits and pieces. There is someone up north of me that is using thier parts for a wrapping machine to wind the thread onto the guides of fly fishing poles.

        This is where I am limited. It would seem to me to be easy to make, but I dont have the equipment or knowledge (yet).

        I sent an email to taig to see if they have something with a large bore.

          I have a Smithy CB1239, bought it brand new
          about seven years ago. It has just over
          1.5" of spindle bore. 39" between centers,
          removable tail stock.

          Its been a great little machine, its paied for itself at least once.
