I have a powermatic lathe that takes a morse taper #2. I want to get a collet and stright expanding mandrel to turn with. My problem is I don’t have the manual of the lathe to get the size and tp of the spindal. I was wondering if anybody could steer me into the right direction with the correct collet that i need.

I can’t really help….
Except to bump the thread….
That and ask if you have done an online search for the manual.
If you give the model number, someone may be able to help.

Good luck….
