    If itís like my 16Ē, itís soft metal and has a press fit from the bottom side of the casting. Drive it through from the outside and it will fall out of the quill bore.

    Once itís out you can reshape it and reinstall.

    Pretty sure that key is at about a 45 degree angle, so if you try to drive it keep that in mind.

    Before I paid for a new tailstock, Iíd pay for a bigger hammer.

    As Iwananew10k says above, itís on an angle so drive accordingly. It will come out. Might need to add some heat to break the schmoo bond loose.

    Ted may have more NOS tailstock quills for your machine, although parts for a 14.5 are rarer. The new quill made a night and day difference on my 16" without any work to address wear inside the TS bore yet.

    I'm planning to bore the old quill out for occasional use with MT4 drills. I just need to get more comfortable boring with the taper attachment before I take it on.
