    Default Lathe with MT3 Tailstock?

    What is the smallest swing lathe you've ever used that had/has a Morse #3 taper tailstock?

    I have a very old monarch (not sure of model and stated swing) that’s around 12-13”. Definitely less than my 15x30 leblond which is also MT3.

    My Graziano SAG 12 has MT#3 and it has a pretty small footprint, but then again, it does weigh 2,200 lbs. Not sure what you are after.

    Kerry 11x24” also.
    Probably most of the real lathes over 10-11” when you don’t count the toys and chinese ones.
