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.
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.
Congratulations Retro Steam Tech - your Morse Taper Ejection Method is the Homemade Tool of the Week!
Another big week around here, but this is a clever build, which was inspired by a similar xynudu build, and then later inspired a similar machining 4 all build. We may have the pleasure of seeing this idea iterated on again.
