    Thank you! Thank you! Some of MT2 devices eject fine but for some it is a real bear to eject the MT2 taper.
    Bowing my head in shame I will admit I have used vice grips and screwdrivers.

    Duh, of course make up a spacer, why didn't I think of that.

    Thanks again! I was wondering how to hold a MT2 taper so that I could drill and tap it now I do not have to! Probably saved me at least a full day.

    This is great. I'm totally stealing this and making one tonight. I might just cut a piece of pipe though.

    just buy tanged arbors for the drill and closed arbors for the tailstock or cut the tang off. With open threaded arbors as used in a mill buy some button head screws and screw one in for use in the lathe tailstock. Incidentally most pedestal drills have a hollow spindle so you can also use a drawbar if you wish.

    I used to use a couple of old parallels but the spacer is easier as you don't have to hold it in place. Glad you found it useful

    That would probably work just as well.

    Of course my dead center which does not eject does not have a shoulder so a spacer will not help me for that.
    I definitely am making up a spacer for my drill chucks and other items that do not eject.
