    If you can find / post a dimensioned drawing it would be really appreciated, and would make producing a replica much easier. I have been putting off trying to work it all out for a long time - being new to the hobby (in terms of skill not interest) a good drawing would be so helpful, and one less source of error!

    Many thanks for the articles.

    I used to have some very well detailed prints of lathe spindle noses, which included good quality shop drawings for each style nose and backing plates. I found this it give most of the dimensions but not well detailed

    This one may be a little better

    Nick it has been a long time since I had my ANSI code book volumes but I seem to t\remember the ANSI code for spindle noses was B-5 point something like .8 or .9 maybe 1957 or some such.
    If you can lay your hands on a copy there are diagrams as well as dimensions in it like the Machinist bible
