Adjustable Right-Angle Tailstock

In stock

Product Description

The adjustable right angle tailstock supports the end of long stock held in the rotary table when it is in the vertical position. This allows you to accurately rotate a part between centers for milling or drilling operations.

Because of “tolerance buildup” in the various parts used to place the rotary table in the 90° position, it is not possible to build a tailstock that would come out exactly on center each time. By using a split base design with slightly oversize holes, the height of the tailstock center is adjustable slightly. Once set to exactly match your rotary table/right angle attachment combination, it should not need to be readjusted. It will work with both the Right-Angle Attachment and the Tilting Angle Table in the 90° position.

Here is a sample setup to cut a gear using the rotary table mounted to the right angle attachment. An adjustable right angle tailstock steadies the other end of the long shaft.
