Build an Offset Center Lathe Attachment
These plans are for making a lathe attachment for a live end boring bar.
Rather than offset the lathe tailstock when
turning tapers, after it has been adjusted to
accurately turn work between centers, make up
an offset center as shown in sketch.
This can be
quickly set at any position from zero to .625 in.
on either side of center, allowing tapers to be
turned with either the large or small end at the
tailstock of the lathe.
