Re: [southbend10k] taper attachmentI have been following the taper attachment thread and wanted to jump in with a question. I have a 13” SB (same bed as a heavy 10). I swapped out the carriage and bed with another lathe that had less wear on the ways. The original carriage had a taper attachment. The new carriage does not have the two dowel pin holes on the rear for the taper attachment.
Any suggestions or ideas on how I would align the two and drill new holes for the dowel pins? I had thought about drilling new holes using the taper attachment as a guide and then reaming them oversize. I could also pour babbit around the pins once the taper attachment was adjusted so the cross feed screw ran true. Has anyone gone down this path?
