Historical Examples of tailstock
The tool rest is clamped to the base the same as the tailstock.The Boy Mechanic, Book 2
This bed carries a headstock and a tailstock similar to a lathe.
In case there is any variation, the tailstock center is adjusted laterally, other trial cuts are taken, and the test repeated.
The tailstock center is ground by inserting it in the spindle in place of the headstock center.
These reamers are held while in use in a socket inserted in the tailstock spindle, as when using a twist drill.
