I have been looking at different lathes over the past week or 2. It seems that a #2 Morse Taper is the way to go because it allows for easier and more abundant accessories or upgrades. I am looking at one lathe that has a #2 Headstock Taper and a #1 tailstock. So now for my questions:
This doesn’t seem correct to me, or is this even possible? What problems could I have with the different MT? When it comes to the madrels, which one would I base it off, the headstock or the tailstock?
Any help would be appreciated.
