Did this video help you?

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 making one. Very simple and effective.. Thanks for sharing, And best wishes on your recovery.. Matt

Red Gear: great vid thanks

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 comments.

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!!!
