    Have you tried turning the handle at the rear of the tailstock to bring the quill all the way in? My Hendey would eject everything fitted in the taper.

    K&T 2K parking attachment

    Gang-I am still looking for a parking attachment for my model 2K. I am pretty sure a 3H will work, as well. If you have one laying around, or know of one, let's talk.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    That is a beautiful machine! What is the top speed of it, if I may ask?

    I, too, desire a 10EE, but also stay clear due to the complicated drive systems.
