Tapers are everywhere.

From the spindles in your lathe and mill, to specialized collets, spin fixtures and rotary tables, tapers are an everyday part of a machinist's life.  Special tapered tools that fit these machines can make life a lot easier!  Whether it's a Morse taper tool holder for your lathe head or tailstock, or a test-shaft that will allow you to almost instantly align your rotary table on your mill, turning your own tapers is a useful, practical skill that will prove very worthwhile.  And it's fun!

In our new book, we'll not only show you the three ways you can cut tapers on your mini, but we'll give you the plans for an easy-to-build taper attachment that cuts EXTREMELY ACCURATE TAPERS!   The attachment is easily within the abilites of the Novice or better machinist, and can be set up to cut tapers within a fraction of a minute of arc!

Fifty pages of spiral-bound heavy stock, designed to lay flat on your workbench, with over 80 full-color photos, along with line-drawings, charts, and 7 plan sheets for the SwarfRat Taper Attachment, this book was designed to be as easy to understand as our DVD presentations.
