I might add that the adapter is only 3" long so the smaller end is just too large to fit.
Any ideas what do I do now?
So I went to a SouthBend Yahoo group and did some searching after rereading some of my posts and responses from helpful blokes and found this...
here's a link
So although my lathe has a bigger spindle bore, and a 13 1/4" spindle length the nose cone may accept an adapter that has the dimensions listed in the tooling sheet. a slope of .602
The .602" slope or taper per foot is almost a Jarno taper. But Jarno tapers are all .600" T.P.F. interested. I have a adapter here I bought for my Sheldon lathe thinking it would work. Fiddling with it the other day I notice it wiggles a little bit at the big end. Now after seeing this, I know now its for a South Bend lathe, not a Sheldon. I may set up on my T & G and re grind the taper to match that in my Sheldon lathe.
