An end-cutting rest is fitted to the tailstock, which is adapted for operating on flanged couplings and similar work.
The tool rest is clamped to the base the same as the tailstock.
This drill is flat and the right end has a large center hole for receiving the center of the tailstock.
These reamers are held while in use in a socket inserted in the tailstock spindle, as when using a twist drill.
After the tailstock center is withdrawn, the emery wheel is adjusted for grinding.
The tailstock center is next set over by guess and a caliper tool is clamped in the toolpost.
A hole is next drilled in the end of the rod by using a twist drill in the tailstock.
When a reamer is used in the lathe, the outer end is supported by the tailstock center and should have a deep center-hole.
The tailstock or poppet-head screw is a right hand because the nut moves in this case.
The lathe is run very slowly for reaming and the reamer is fed into the work by feeding out the tailstock spindle.
