Thanks for taking the time to make the vid. Nice work.
I could not but notice the slippage in the tailstock though, if I may make a suggestion? Have a roll of bog paper handy at all times and always wipe the shank before insertion, you can also lay a piece around the shank and use it to clean the bore,(toilet paper is cheap and there is no temptation to save for another day unlike rag). If you have 'skid-marks' use some toothpaste as the abrasive and lightly lap your shanks to the bore of the tailstock. You will get a matt finish but you will also get a proper grip. If you find spotty contact you may have to invest in a reamer. If a Morse Taper ever slips stop and find out why, usually it is a slight oil film but if left it will bugger both the tool and the socket.
I hope this is of some help,
