I have a Lansing Engine lathe and am triing to make a stop to put in the spindle. The ID of said spindle is very rough. but the last approx 1.25" has a ground finish. I thought I'd make my stop fit there, but it turns out this is a #6 MT.
Why would one want a MT on the back end of the spindle?
I am going to attack the roughness in the spindle with a cylinder hone. (being careful not to hit the MT). It seems it's the extreme roughness in there that has always stopped me from putting 2" stock throught the spindle.
Thank You, Randy
