I have a 1956 13" south bend lathe ,Does anyone happen to have the spindle nose cone that I believe allows you to put a center in it to allow to turn between centers ? the chuck end spindle bore size is 1.616" in diameter the far left side opening is 1.412" spindle diameter approximately 2 1/2" into chuck end of spindle is 1.515" and overall length of spindle bore is 21"

A centre goes into the spindle taper ,then a drive dog fits a cutout in a small driving plate .........I suspect whats pictured is for a collet chuck setup,and is simply a fancy thread protector for the spindle thread.

Thanks for your response, How do I know what taper I need ?
