Nope..I wish it was morse taper, but not on this one. A buddy loaned me an
MT2 yesterday and it's not even close, The spur on the headstock screws
onto a thread and is about 2" long...No luck at that end either. Will try
the site you suggested.
: I need a drill chuck for a Rockwell - Beaver 11" wood lathe model 3401A
: (later Delta).
: Anyone know where I might get parts for it???
If it's a standard taper, there's all sorts of sources. If it's a Morse taper,
woodturning supplier (woodcraft, lee Valley, Craft Supplies). If it's a
taper, I'd try a machinist supply (McMaster-Carr, MSC).
To figure out what it is, I'd go to http://www.owwm.com (the Old Woodworking
group website), and dig around.

It has no taper....Straight with a machined slot on one side. I tried
tapping the live center out but have a feeling it's either really stuck or
an integral part of the whole piece. I don't really know. I'll just have to
Just before I sent this I went to a site that had an exploded view of the
parts and it described part #30 as a dead center with a #1 morse taper
included......Sooo it must be stuck tight...Hmmmm. Wish I knew someone who
had this machine.
