Matthew Gischus: Bloody brilliant,
I have often thought of building a taper attachment for my lathe but never
bothered due to lack of simplicity, After watching your video I will be
Very simple and effective..
Thanks for sharing, And best wishes on your recovery..
BlairBuildersllc: Great idea but would much rather a human voice.
mrpete222: VERY NICELY MADE--ingenious.
Shawn Hawkins: I didn't know Steven Hawking owned a lathe. Great video.
n4zou: If you are going to produce a large number of tapered barrels you can use
flat stock instead of a round bar and use 3 spring loaded bearings instead
if the simple plumbers delight follower I used on my taper attachment. This
allows milling several different tapers along the bar that will be
reproduced on the barrels. A gunsmith I know does this and I used a
simplified version of it for my taper attachment. As the bearings move
along the bar they push/pull the cross slide as the barrel is turned.
Francisco Guerrero Jr: That was awesome!
n4zou: My mouth is wired shut due to surgery. I should be able to talk after
everything heals. I've been warned that I may never speak properly once my
mouth heals and the wires are removed. BTW: I took no offence at your
Terry Schmidt: Awesome thinking there. Thanks for sharing.
erynthegrey: Hmmm.. Then why is he talking in his other videos? I don't think you have
anything to apologize for, Donald...
Donald R. Cossitt: Then my sincerest apology for being rude - no excuse. Its a very helpful
video even though hard to understand the voice over.
Jose Ramos: Thank you for posting this video, very informative and accurate. Well done.
Donald R. Cossitt: ;)
bummer12010: This is a very nice video. It gives a very concise method and explanation
of constructing a taper attachment for most (all?) lathes...would certainly
work on my Logan 9B-28. It only took a couple of runs through it, to tune
in to the synthesized speech, and the note from n4zou was a help also.
Thanks for posting. Tom
Troy Fregm: Very informative video, I thank you. Im a machinist but never used a taper
attachment but want to make and use one for barrel tapers. Thank you
TheBerkeleyGang: Voice by Commodore 64? VERY annoying.
Robert Cooper: i start making mine tomrrow
Richard Kicklighter: Thank you! I have studied all the taper attachments that others have built.
Yours is absolutely the best. I have a Clausing 3916 that will now have a
taper attachment thanks to your generosity. Keep creating!!
n4zou: Yes I am.
Donald R. Cossitt: Dude, are you a mute? Why then use the computer generated voice over that
no one can understand?
crh5464: Me too! Thanks for this video!
david luster: bad video....pickle hole!!!
