      A live center turns with the work. A dead center is in the tailstock. A
      turning center turns with the work and is mounted in the tailstock.

      The length of the taper in the small lathe tailstock is smaller than
      the normal Morse taper and many commercial tapers will "hit bottom'
      before they seat, especially ones with tangs on them. Also, the
      tailstock is designed to push out or eject the taper when it is fully
      retracted. Try extending your tailstock quill some to see if the taper
      will now seat.
